Item Information

Title:
The Badger House
Description:
"The old house is on Prince Street, corner of Thatcher Street, and was built about 1750, probably by Benjamin Brown, and afterward owned by Caleb Champney. Col. Thos. Badger bought it in 1802. He was quite a prominent man in his time. This building, which, quaint and somewhat dilapidated, has, with the exception of the shop in front, been very little changed."
