The Silas Deane House, 203 Main Street

"Silas Deane graduated from Yale College in 1758 and was admitted to the bar in 1761. He established his law practice in Wethersfield, where he met and became the legal and business advisor to Joseph Webb’s widow, Mehitabel Webb. They married in 1763, and their son Jesse was born the following year. Unfortunately, Mehitabel died in 1767, leaving Deane with the responsibility for young Jesse as well as the six Webb children.

In 1769, Silas married another rich widow, Elizabeth Saltonstall Evards from New London. She was the granddaughter of a former governor of Connecticut and a member of a socially prominent family...

The Deane house was completed prior to Deane’s marriage to Elizabeth in late 1769..."
