This series is another old family home but sadly this one is no longer in the family. The Steere family came to the New World in the 1600's from Ockely, SurreyEngland and eventually followed Roger Williams to Providence, Rhode Island where Williams had established a colony with true religious freedom - unlike the very narrow minded Puritans to the north. The house is located in Harrisville, Rhode Island where many Steere's live to this day in Harrisville and the surrounding towns.

This home belonged to one of his descendants - Simeon Steere. The first picture is a drawing of the house from around 1890 taken from the Steere Genealogy. The second is as the house appeared in 1981 and the third as it now appears. My great grandmother eventually sold the house in the very early 1900's.

Very nicely done. It appears that the house was added on to in recent years. The added room, garage, and upgrade of the exterior really look nice.
