As early as 1712, Ebenzer Grosvenor was numbered among these families by Capt. John Sabin. It is traditional that the Harrison house was built by Ebenezer Grosvenor who there lived out his day. Born in 1684 and died in 1730--his was an active, useful life. He was on the committee to decide upon the site of the first meeting-house and "school house by the sign post". He was also Sergeant of Pomfret's First Military Company.

In 1800 the Harrison house was the home of Sylvanus Backus, Pomfret's famous lawyer, who was elected to Congress by both parties in 1817 but died before taking his seat. His law office stood until recently. A monument in the North Burying Ground commemorates him.
