Historical Context

Taken around 2005, these photographs of homes in Newfield were collected and annotated to include historical property information.  The photographs were copied onto printer paper with the captions typed beneath.  

The homes are from Shaffer Road, Taggart Road, and Benjamin Hill Road.  As described in an included page of clippings, Shaffer Road was named for Amos and Cicero Shaffer, Taggart Road was named for Will Taggart, and Benjamin Hill Road was named for Jonathan Benjamin - all Newfield residents in the 19th century.
