The 1771 House
1771 HOUSE. Tradition says that his is one of two brick houses built in the 1770’s by Dan Raymond, a village merchant and land speculator. Raymond was a Tory who instigated the felling of a liberty tree placed on the village green in July 1776. When his role in the deed was discovered, Raymond was forced to walk between two files of all the men and boys of the town, humbly asking pardon of each one. He was a man of influence in the town and later changed his political views, becoming chairman of a committee to find recruits for the Revolutionary Army. His last son was named George Washington Raymond.
