General Sylvanus Lazell Home, c. 1799. This home was built by General Lazell whose capabilities were shown in many ways- sponsoring the building of the turnpike, iron manufacturing, trading, and transportation. It later became the home of Judge Nahum Mitchell who married General Lazell's daughter, Nabby, followed by the judge's half brother, Cushing, the Henry Hobart family from 1872-1900, the Mann family, Frederick and then Charles until 1941 and Dr. Soli Morris until 1967.
It was torn down in 1968. (2007) It is now the Sachem Nursing Home.
