The Register says (17 Register, p. 27), it had been called the Pit (gravel pit). As Mr. Hall owned more to the east than Dr. Swan did, no doubt this expression Pit applied to Lot J, and in some degree to Lots K and L.
J—house of Benjamin Hall, Jr. (Dudley Hall). Built A. D. 1786.
Excavation here also, but the north steep nicely terraced; steps leading up to large garden above on the north, and to cow barn northeast opening to Governor's lane.
K—Eben Hall house (Mrs. Thomas S. Harlow) was a large three-story city house with, I think, brick ends.
Built A. D.——. An absurd little back yard, mostly perpendicular; steps up to a part.
Title too shoal to permit excavation very much northward.
L—Isaac Hall house, built A. D.——. Three-story, back premises like K. Samuel Buell lived here about——. I knew his daughter Charlotte.
She married and went to live in Schaghticoke, N. Y., near Troy.
Dark granite and red gravel.
These always came together.
