Rev. William A. Smith/Abby D. Slocomb House, 1852/extensively restructured by Slocomb in the 1890s

Smith’s original  Federal style was extensively restructured about 1890 by Mrs. Abby D. Slocomb into a Tudor style mansion called “Daisy Crest over Groton”.  She was a woman activist of her day, founder of the local DAR and submitter of the design for the Connecticut State Flag still flown today.
