CAPT. AMOS PALMER HOUSE


Stonington, CT - The Whistler family lived here at least for a while. Mr. Whistler was a great railroad builder. (I wrote about him when I posted about "Chester On Track"). And yes his wife was THE "Whistler's Mother".

I also notice on the Smithsonian website there was mention of this house having a fantastic garden which was not visible from my vantage point.
