Long Description:
The Hurd House was the home of John Hurd who became the town miller by an agreement of August 28, 1681. In 1967, the house came into the possession of the Old Woodbury Historical Society. During restoration and removal of the interior double walls in the north rooms of the house, wallpaper came to light which had been covered for generations. The earliest of these wallpapers had been applied to the wood panelling and bears the marks of English paper of the reign of King George III. The hurd House is a fine example of pioneer homes of the seventeenth century.
