Description 2009 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ~~ Still life of a room in the historic Buttolph-Williams House in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Although originally attributed to David Williams, this house, built in 1711, is now believed to have been built for Benjamin Belden, a local tavern-keeper, and his wife Anne Churchill. Almost medieval in style, it features diamond-paned casement windows and heavy beams. There are no windows in back of the house. Its dark and ancient appearance inspired Elizabeth George Speare to use it as one of the settings in her Newbery Medal-winning book, 'The Witch of Blackbird Pond.' The house has been fully restored and has been set up to reflect some of the scenes in the book, set in 1687. Blackbird Pond has, alas, dried up and disappeared since the book was published in 1958.
