The Wheeler House

The Thomas Wheeler House is a historic Colonial home located at 266 Brewster Street, in the village of Black Rock Harbor in Bridgeport, Connecticut.[1] The core of the house was built in 1644 as a 1 12-story house and was enlarged to its present size around 1680. Thomas Wheeler was Black Rock's first white settler.[2] The house, Bridgeport's oldest, is located near the Fayerweather Boat Yard. Abbot Lowell Cummings, Professor Emeritus, American Art, Yale University, observed the restoration work done in the late 1980s. The house was recently threatened by the encroachment of a large development in 2006.[3] The Wheeler House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places within the Black Rock Historic District added on March 15, 1979.[discuss]
