Hidden behind a magnificent Copper Beech Tree is the Moses Connett House.
The original structure was built in 1746 to "overlook the route traversed by Cornwallis with 600 men on their way to an encampment behind Grove Street." In the 1850s and 1920s additions were constructed, all making up the 11 room farmhouse that includes three fireplaces.
It still contains the wide wainscoting, built-ins and batten doors with authentic latches installed long ago by Westfield pioneers. The house sits on a private acre of property and includes a detached two-car garage, shed and a collector's garden with trees including Atlas Cedar, Catalpa, Weeping Cherry, 2 Star Magnolias, Miss Kim Lilac and Dwarf Japanese Maple.
