About Zachariah Curtiss, Jr.

The Zachariah Curtiss Houses are located in New England, and are Colonial American wooden post-and-beam timber frame farm houses. The older house of the two was built by Zachariah I around 1686 and the second house was built by his son Zachariah II around 1721 in the Georgian architectural style. The houses are situated on the Farm Highway or Route 108 on the south side of Mischa Hill and are among the oldest houses in the village of Nichols in Trumbull, Connecticut.

On February 27 1721, Zachariah I transferred his entire farm with 52 acres (0.21 km2) of land to his son Zachariah II. The farm was described as containing two separate parcels. One parcel contained 20 acres (0.081 km2) with a dwelling house and was on the west side of the Farm highway and was bounded west on Daniel Hawley (Ehpraim Hawley's son), south on Joseph Curtiss, north on Fairchild land and east on the Farm highway. The other parcel was on the east side of the Farm highway and contained 32 acres (0.13 km2) of land and a barn and was bounded west with the Farm highway and part west on Benjamin Beach, Ephraim and Joseph Curtiss, part south on Captain John Hawley, east with Benjamin Beach and north on Joseph Curtiss.

In 1746, Zachariah II left his new house, the old barn and whole homestead to his only son Mitchell when he died.
