That is old! I have a book on IDing houses that I don't have time to look in right now (lol).

Anyway the construction of this house matches construction on two houses in Preston CT that date back to the early 1830s...I would have told you to check them out on google street view but it doesn't show one of the houses and the other is obscured by trees. 

Future of the house you posted really doesn't look so good though, what's going on with this property?

A construction/logging company owns it and not sure what they are going to do with it, I heard it was condemned but I don't know for sure. My friend actually went in later the same day I had went and he said it was pretty trashed especially the second story.
