The Stanton-Davis Homestead in Stonington, Connecticut is an extraordinary survival - one of the most architecturally distinguished houses built in colonial Connecticut - it is almost unique in having had an unbroken chain of ownership from the 17th century when the original wing was built - until the 1990s when the Davis family donated the property to a non-profit museum development corporation.

The Stanton-Davis Homestead is a touch-stone for three different cultures: Native Indians, European colonists, and African slaves. Through the Stanton family representatives of these three peoples lived in or visited this house: chiefs of Indian tribes, most notably Uncas of the Mohegans; African slaves, including Venture Smith who bought his own freedom; and of course the Stantons and the Davises themselves.

The property is a national treasure that MUST BE SAVED.
