Where

This beautifully intact 1732 Dutch Colonial in Coventry, Connecticut historic house belonged to Jesse Root. The house has been rumored to have been built by slave labor. And in the basement was their quarters. Root served in the Revolution, rising all the way to Adjutant-General of the Connecticut Line. He was also a Connecticut delegate to the Continental Congress, chief justice in the state’s Supreme Court, Congressman, and minister. Not bad.
