The Saltbox, a colonial classic, with its rustic, asymmetric charm embodies country living up and down the eastern seaboard. Captain Lawrence Kearny, born in this house, wrote of it in a letter in 1842, “I may establish proper rules and regulations for the better government of the old cottage next Spring… on my hoisting my broad penant upon the old pear tree … and there I shall conclude my long career of sea service.” And so he did, retiring from the US Navy, raising his 3 sons, together with his wife Josephine.
