Built by Stowe for his bride, Hepzibah Collins, this house with its five bays, 12/12 sash, center chimney with smokehouse in the attic, and six-light transom over what may be the original door is an excellent example of Guilford’s Colonial period. Isaac was a blacksmith who made household hardware as well as horseshoes in his shop behind the house. He and Hepzibah had ten children, one of whom, Isaac Jr., was killed by Indians in New York State during the Revolution. Their oldest daughter, Olive, married Christopher Spencer, also a blacksmith; it was their son,
Isaac Stowe Spencer, who founded the Spencer Foundry at 18 Fair Street.
