Building History


Originally land of the Everetts (see 89 Main St.), this property eventually became owned by Perley Carson, a salesman, who was the son-in-law of Fred A. Pressey and wife, Josie. The house was built for Carson and wife, Gladys (Pressey) Carson in 1928. The Carsons left New London by 1930.[2]

Fred and Josie (Chadwick) Pressey resided here until their deaths — hers in 1950 and his in 1957. During these years Pressey was an undertaker, with business in the Odd Fellows hall.
