The Vino Elderkin house - built by Colonel Elderkin for his son.The photo shows Jerusalem Road as it joined the present day Route 203. The Colonel Elderkin house in on the photo’s right. It was built by Colonel Elderkin for his son Vino just after the Revolutionary War. The bricks were said to be imported from Holland and the nails were hand wrought. It was torn down in 1912. It had fallen into disrepair several years earlier and nothing was done to prevent further damage. The Colonel himself never lived there - his house was in the Windham center village.
