  • Remarks addendumThis Georgian colonial was built in 1775 during the American Revolution. Constructed by Squire Nathan Seeley where he lived with his wife and 14 children. Seeley ran a well known hatting business, located on the property. Seeley's brother was a local merchant, who built what is now the Bethel Public Library. Two of the Seeley brothers served as Presidents of Smith and Amherst College. The entire Seeley family were locally famous and admired. This home neighbors a prominent hotel from same era :the Barnum Tavern. Seeley was friends to the Barnum family, of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. This home is still a main feature on tours given by the Bethel Historical Society. With its cross street Main Street, and the First Congregational church across the way, beautiful views capture special moments. A one of kind opportunity to own a home is such a special place both filled with a plethora of history and charm.
