This is yet another shot I took down Freeport way a couple of weeks ago on my way home from West Point. The house is on the left as you drive down to the landing, just before the bend to the right. As with all things old, the structure's history, its stories, its good times, its bad times scream out to be told. But unless somebody tells me, I'm left to my own devices to fill in the blanks.
