Like the Keeler family in yesterday's post, the prolific Scott family occupied several houses in the northern part of Ridgefield in the 18th century, close to the line of march of the British soldiers.
This is the 1740 Hezekiah Scott house, significantly expanded and modernized 15 years ago. This Scott was a weaver, distiller and sawmill operator. This part of town is called Scotland, reflecting the presence of many Scotts. Across the street are the Barlow Mountain and Scotland elementary schools.
