Object ID:

Collection:
Burrows, Benjamin Family Collection
Description:
View of West Mystic Avenue looking south from New London Rd. (Route 1), ca. 1915, b&w print. 3 West Mystic Ave. in foreground, left with Benjamin Burrows Homestead ( ca.1850) built by Gustavus Appleman), 5 West Mystic Ave. behind.

Note with the photo: It was called Skipper Street becuase the houses were owned by sea captains but they objected to that name, and re–named it West Mystic Avenue. The first house was that of Edna Colby and then the Burrows homestead where Aunt Lizzie Burrows lived.
