Rev. Reuel Hotchkiss Tuttle House, 1865

Rev. Reuel Hotchkiss Tuttle, a Hartford native, was the Rector of Grace Episcopal Church from 1860 to 1870. He constructed this Gothic-style home in 1865. A newspaper article about his 1865 Christmas party states that a Christmas tree was 'placed in the beautiful conservatory, which is entered from the parlor and library, an arrangement excellent for the purpose' and that the home was 'conveniently arranged in all its parts, finished throughout in hard wood, the walls painted and papers in singularly good taste, having all the modern improvements.' In 1881, Reverend Tuttle added indoor plumbing to the home. The first floor of the house has Gothic pointed arches and trefoils in the fireplace mantles, wall paneling, and even carved into the front door. Outside, the pointed arches and trefoils can also be found in the rooflines and red trim. These Gothic details mirror architectural elements in the design of Grace Church next door. Rev. Tuttle's grandchildren gave the house to the church in 1933. It served as a residence for the rector until 2001 and today houses the church's Sunday School. The Town of Windsor, Connecticut, Historic Survey of August 1981, described the house as - one of the finest examples of the style in the town. Copyright 2015 Windsor Historical Society.
