The Joseph Moore House (1751)

Moore House

The Joseph Moore House is located in an area known as the Southwick Jog, a section of the town of Southwick that extends into Connecticut. The house was built in 1751 by Joseph Moore and was lived in by his son, Roger Moore (1752-1838), for his entire life. Owing to the many boundary changes which led to the creation of the Southwick Jog (which is surrounded by Connecticut on three sides), Roger Moore lived in two states, three counties, and four towns, without ever moving! The house has been restored as a museum by the Southwick Historical Society.

One Response to The Joseph Moore House (1751)

  1. Your photographs are always a delight. I loved this owner’s “journey” without ever leaving home. It reminds me of business nowadays – you can work for three or four employers without ever changing your desk. I’m on my second company / same desk but I know others in my field who’ve worked for four companies without ever changing jobs.
