Long Description:
The house is located at the intersection of Westford (CT 89) Rd and Pompey Hollow Rd (US44)and is hidden from view by a dense planting of evergreen trees. The Mixer Inn served as a tavern which served as a gathering place for local residents, and long-distance travelers. The home has retained many of its original features, such as the bar-room partition.
