  1. I worked on the restoration of the Buckingham House at Mystic Seaport Museum 20 years ago. The back section where the kitchen is is from the 1690’s. The front section is from the mid 1700’s. Unfortunately when the house was moved to Mystic many of the original features were removed(front door, windows,additions) or covered up. We repaired many of the original clapboards & made new ones by hand to replace the modern ones that had been used in prior restorations

  3. You mention that the two houses in Zanesville are a block from each other, but not where in Zanesville. Can you tell me what street or streets they are on?

  5. My records indicate moxhala avenue for the residence of Alvah. I have an extensive collection of Buckingham Family history and have published a book in 1999 called The Buckingham Family book II , a continuation of the original family history published in 1872. Thank you for posting the pic of Jerome and CP Buckingham’s homes on this site, I had never seen them before. The Old Saybrook home of Thomas Buckingham is beautiful, the current owners let me do a walk through and many original pieces still exist.
