1596 Longmeadow Street (#72 The Walter Bliss House - 1785/1831?)

This small Greek Revival house was built sometime between 1785 and 1831, probably by Walter Bliss. The land originally was owned by the Colton family. In the late 1860's the property was a prosperous dairy farm that supplied all of Longmeadow and much of Springfield with dairy products.
