12) Harpers Magazine, Vol 52, Number 309,

Page 318, Feb 1876: In describing the old

Huntley house, still standing over two hundred

years since being built; "Turning North from

the Waite Mansion you are confronted by a

quaint homestead which seems to be taking

life comfortably right in the middle of the

street. Venerable trees rise above it and

their branches droop over it's small paned

windows. It's door-step is foot worn, it's hall

of entrance of a pre-Revolutionary pattern

and it's whole architecture one sided; but it

has an unmistakable air of gentility. If you

enter you are plunged headlong into an

antiquarian mine, panelled walls, curious

cornices, enormous fire places. High mantels

and round tables bring all your forefathers

and foremothers round you in their powdered

wigs and high heeled shoes. The chairs and

pictures are many of them two hundred years

old. You may presume before you get to it

that the street ends plump against the little

door yard fence. No, the street is guilty of no

such impertinence. It dodges politely around

the edifice and pursues it's otherwise

unbending course as if accustomed to

trifling obstructions."
