The Hoyt-Barnum House at 713 Bedford St. Stamford, Connecticut, was built around 1699. The builder was a descendant of one of the original founders of Stamford. The large chimney stack of the Hoyt-Barnum House is made of field stone, laid up with clay, animal hair, and straw. The house is braced timber frame construction or post and beam. The foundation is of field stone. The west room of the house is plastered. The east room is whitewashed and the hearth room walls are sheathed with wood paneling, thus showing the various finishing techniques incorporated into the house during its evolution.
The house is now owned and maintained as a museum by the Stamford Historical Society. Open by appointment for tours, the house features 17th and 18th century furnishings.
It's a simple 17th century farmhouse, the only one surviving in the area.
