A home that replaced one built by a colonial militiaman in Westport has hit the market for $1.95 million, The Norwalk Hour reported. Phineas Chapman, who served as a lieutenant in the Connecticut Militia in 1775, built a house at 39 Cross Highway in 1742. That home burned down in the 1870s, but Chapman’s grandson rebuilt it, the property’s current owner, Deborah Howland-Murray, told the outlet. “We don’t know if everything burned or if there is any part of the wood structure that remained,” she said. Howland-Murray noted that “some of the furniture was saved,” and that the home “plays a unique role in Westport’s history.” Sandy Ruta and Marina Leo of the Higgins Group have the listing. [The Hour]
