The House of Captain Joseph Trumble, Sr., of Lebanon, Connecticut, built circa 1735/40.
The Governor Jonathan Trumbull Sr. House
Owned and maintained by the Connecticut Daughters of the American Revolution.
My ancestral grandfather, Captain Joseph Trumble, Sr., Patriarch of the Trumbull family of Lebanon, Connecticut had this house built in 1735/1740. In 1755 the house was inherited by his eldest surviving son, Jonathan Trumble/Trumbull, Sr., Connecticut's Revolutionary War Governor. "The house of Governor Trumbull stood originally and until 1824 on the north corner of Town Street and the Colchester road, on the present site of the Lyman house, and the War Office was west and near it, on the Colchester road."
