SWHouse: Historic photos


Now known as the Sands-Willets House, the home of the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society, this is a very rare view of the house when it was only 20 years old, in the 1870s.  There is no street in front of the house, of course, as the Willet’s property encompassed many dozens of acres.  Difficult to see without magnification is the horse & buggy & mystery person in front of the Sands portion of the house (lower/smaller portion at the left):
