Horatio Colony House Museum – United States

Author Horatio Colony (1900-1977) was raised in a family of successful mill owners whose history in Keene dates back to 1761. His four-square Federal style family home at 199 Main Street was built in 1806 by the Blake family. In the early 1830's the house was sold to Elias Joslin, a well-respected blacksmith. Elias and his wife Maria Emes Joslin left the house to their only child, Emeline. Emeline married Horatio Colony, the youngest son of Josiah Colony who co-founded the woolen mill in Keene with Francis Faulkner.
