Which you will not only be able to live in a Historic Home, but you will also be able to live in New Hampshire's fineness villages, and one of the largst Historic Districts, in all of the State. And possible all of New England.
Be my guest and pull up a chair and relax and enjoy a nice cool glass of sweet tea or would ya like a glass of some freshly made lemonade, as we explore the History of the Holton Home here in the Charlestown, New Hampshire's National Historic District.
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire Part 3, it was in the year 1786 when Captain Jonathan Holton and his wife moved to the Town of Charlestown. Captain Holton was a Revolutionary War veteran who marched to the defense of Historic Fort Ticonderoga under General John Stark, Captain Holton wounded during the Battle of Bennington. Originally at this property was a little province-size brown cottage, that Captain Holton built for his family.
According to Colonel Samuel Webber, Captain Jonathan Holton lived his last few years of his life in that cottage. When he died in 1821 he left the use of the cottage to his beloved wife Nancy, during her life. After her death the cottage was to go to two of his sons, which was George and Augustus, their youngest son was named David. Mrs. Holton died in 1840, the following year George relinquished his rights to his bother Augustus, which made him the sole heir to the family home.
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire-Part 3, during the intervening years of the cottage was occupied by one Samuel Bosworth and then in 1929 it was occupied by one Joseph Heaton and more than likely by others up until the cottage was acquired by Captain and Mrs. Holton's youngest son David, who remained in Charlestown. David in 1843 deeded the home to his son, David Jr., and he also raised his kids at the family cottage. As David Jr.'s family circumstances improved and liven in the area became more genteel, the Greek Revival style front was added in 1843 as well as the second story porch and the semi-circular arch, this home sure does presents a unique facade on Charlestown's Main Street.
It was quite usual for Charlestown natives, and their families to leave the old homestead and spread out all across the United States, but they were also drawn back for summer vacations and retirement. Many of the Holtons, well educated and prominent citizens, followed that there patern.
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire-Part 3, It was in 1918 that one Dorothy Holton of Chicago, Illinois, married one Archibald Sayce, a prominent engineer of the same city. The couple came to live permanently at the old family home here in Charlestown, that took place in the year 1930. The Sayce family rounded out nearl 210 years of the Holton's ownership of this home and property here in the Town of Charlestown.
New owners have been finden some over-the-years changes in this old home structure as they renovate and redecorate it. There have been french doors added, and arched doorways have been reconstructed. The old cellar of stone and brick now has a concrete floor, and a stairway had been changed. The mantels and facings of the five fireplaces had been modernized, but basically Dorothy and Archie remodeled true to the Greek Revival style. The light and airy six bedroom home is very elegant in its architectual simplicity of plain wainscotting and window trim with high pediments.
Historic Homes Charlestown New Hampshire-Part 3, with doing new decorating, and maybe a bit more Italianate with painted murals by the owners, and with a touch of "Shabby Chic" style, the home will tastefully conform back to the pattern of the past.
Remember when you buy a Charlestown, New Hampshire Historic Home, you are buying and preserving a peace of American History. So why not look at the Town of Charlestown, New Hampshire's Historic Home District.
