The Raymond-Bradford Homestead is a historic house on Raymond Hill Road in Montville, Connecticut. It is a 2 12-story wood-frame structure, five bays wide, with a hip roof. It was built in stages, with the oldest portion dating to about 1710. The house is notable for its continuous ownership by a single family.[2] The first owner of the house was Mercy Sands Raymond.[3] Before moving to the mainland she lived on Block Island, where it is thought she accommodated Captain Kidd and was paid handsomely for the help.[4]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 16, 1982.[1]
