Selden

Selden
Beginnings: The founding farmers of the mid-1700s called it Westfield and spent many early winters hacking wood from their newly acquired lots. The extra income earned from selling the cordwood came in handy for families such as the Roes, Nortons and Longbothams, trying to eke out a living in the sparsely settled region. Built about 1752, the Norton family home was the oldest remaining in Selden but was gutted by fire in the fall of 1996. Local preservationists are still unsure of the landmark's future.
