You Can Be Part Of History And Help Choose The Color Of This House

Should it be white, light yellow or gray? You can help choose the winning color by taking part in our poll.


If you have driven or walked down East Main Street in the last six months (and who hasn't) you have witnessed the renovation and transformation of a large antique home just a few doors down from next to the .

It is called the "Milestone House" and is located at 68 East Main. According to the owners, it has remained in the same family since it was built in 1730.

The current owners are doing a complete renovation and using all of the original wood from the floors and walls in the renovation.

Recently, a representative and friend of the owners contacted the Clinton Patch and proposed that through a poll on our site, they could ask the community what color paint (from a choice of three) they'd choose for the exterior of the house.

The three color options are: White, Light Yellow or Cape Cod Gray

Take our poll and let your voice be heard!

Love gray!

I love color so either yellow or gray would look great. Out of curiosity though, does anyone know what would have been traditional in 1730? If it was white, that would be my choice. Great job on the renovation.

Need some color - light yellow!!! Love the renovations so far.
Ann Herrick August 29, 2012 at 02:48 PM
I voted Cape Cod Gray because I think that's what color it was when I was attending Pierson (Clinton Grammar School back then!). But light yellow would look nice too. Glad to see that the house is being lovingly restored.

I hope it won't be vinyl. That would be so awful for that Beautiful old house.

I am torn between the Cape Cod Grey and the light yellow. Gray is safer, as it will look good no matter what. If the yellow is even a little off, you may regret it. I love the addition and can't wait to see it completed!

I go with Cape Cod Grey....it will be elegant. Thanks for saving that old beauty.
