Notes
Survey number HABS CT-366
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-46).
Significance: One of Old Saybrook's most important structures, the Gen. William Hart house is a fine example of 18th century Connecticut architecture. Its most important owner, Gen. William Hart was a member of a rich, educated and influential family. He was an adult during the richest period in Saybrook's history and was an important participant in Revolutionary and post-Revolutionary events from 1776 to 1817. The house does have sufficient architectural merit to make it important. Its strategic location near the center of town on Main Street lends a feeling of permanence to the area because it maintains the best of Saybrook's architectural heritage.
