Historic Preservation

This is the John Randall House in North Stonington, CT. Better known as Randall's Ordinary It was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1978. Originally built in 1685 it has been around through many important events in human history. It was most recently used as a restaurant and inn, but closed its doors many years ago. Maintenance lapsed leaving it exposed to time and the elements. With the new owner and the guide of the National Registry of Historic places we have been given the task of "mothballing" the house. Many measures are being taken to prevent further decay until the new owner gets a chance to appropriately restore the building. We have cleaned the inside, will be giving it a temporary asphalt roof (currently the rain comes right in), and have boarded all windows securely. With the owners vision and some hard work Randalls will return to its former glory.
