This house was built in 1839 for George and Abigail Greenman. He was the oldest of the three brothers who founded the George Greenman & Co. Shipyard. The three brothers lived here until Clark Greenman built his house next door on your right in 1841. The youngest brother, Thomas, built his house two doors to your right in 1842. All three houses were built in the Greek Revival style then popular in the U.S. The cast-iron fence was put up about 1866, and the porches and ornate decorations were added to the houses in the 1870s. In style and paint color, the George Greenman House now looks the way it did around 1900. The George Greenman House will be restored as an exhibit building.


This section of Mystic was named Greenmanville after the three brothers. It was an industrial village from the 1840s to the 1890s. In addition to the shipyard, the brothers built a textile mill, rented houses to workers, managed nearby farms, and operated a store. The work schedule reflected the Greenmans' Seventh Day Baptist faith, with the Sabbath observed on Saturday. Strong abolitionists and strict supporters of temperance, the Greenmans were active leaders in the church they built for the community.
