|the John Platt Williams house (c. 1817)|
I might have called this post 'P.S.' I know that I occasionally promise to return to a subject (and regularly forget) but it was just last night, while looking for something in a back issue, I came across Phil Ainsworth's detailed article about the Prinzen farm. I mused about its unique situation in the middle of the village of Bloomfield not long ago. I cannot imagine why '310 Main Street Bloomfield', which appeared in the Winter 2015 issue of County Magazine, hadn't come to mind when I wrote the post.
Unfortunately, as County Magazine doesn't have a web presence, the only advice I can give is to check with one of PEC's great public librairies or rifle through someone's magazine rack. And enjoy Phil Ainsworth's fascinating article - meticulous research, enjoyable writing, and the archival photos of 310 Main Street, Bloomfield.
