There's 4 access points to the property: 2 on Wheaton, one on Church Hill & on Sunset. The 1845 Farmhouse & historically significant dairy barn was once home to Yale educated author and American priest, Nathaniel Wheaton, whose interest in architecture inspired the design of the St Andrews Episcopal Church in Marbledale. The farmhouse represents one of the earliest homes in Washington, and one of the only Gothic Revival style homes in rural Connecticut. The property derives further significance for its association with the Wheatons and Buckinghams, and their contributions to the development of the marble industry in western Connecticut.
