The Hinckley House is best known as one of the seven historical Ridge Homes of Orford, favorably located in town yet cradled by lush New England forests and a gently flowing Connecticut River. The prominence of the Hinckley House goes beyond this charming distinction, however. This house is a true testament to a bygone era, with notable features and memorable people to distinguish it. Discovered beneath layers of wallpaper in the 1960s, two meticulously restored Rufus Porter American Folk Art murals adorn all four walls of the North and South bedrooms, endowing this estate with rare, authentic works of art. Daniel Webster once stayed in the North bedroom as a guest during his campaign for Presidency in 1840, complimenting in a letter to his wife the hospitality of his gracious hosts, the original owners of the house. In the 1890s the Boston Symphony Orchestra toured New England and played on the front lawn for the citizens of the area. In addition, the first floor of the barn - recently renovated into a game room - once served as a dance hall. Talk about central - from the first years of existence, this estate has been a gathering place for family, friends, and community. And yet, while the Hinckley House radiates with history, it's a clean canvas ready for your vision of the future. It's so much more than an iconic house on a hill; it's a wonderfully unique place - with a story - to call home.
