At 201 Elmwood Ave. sits a home built by Dr. Caleb Halstead in 1783. Dr. Halstead was a well known Revolutionary War physician who cared for American and British troops. General Lafayette visited the house in 1825 but his old friend Dr. Halstead was too sick to see him. Dr. Halstead died in 1827 and the house was sold in 1829 to Col. Daniel Burnet. Col. Burnet died in 1854 and willed the property to his son, John Burnet. John Burnet died in 1880 and placed the property in the care of his maiden daughters Anne and Caroline. In 1926 Abner Headley who had been the main caretaker since 1879 was willed the property upon the death of Caroline Burnet. In 1956 the house was moved about 50 feet to the west to make way for Abner Lane. Some records list this house at 195 Elwood ave. Elmwood Ave. was once a part of the Galloping Hill Road during the 1700's.
