Terms of Access and Use:
From 1951-1991 or 1992, Irene Gillette Steiner and her husband George Steiner were the owners of a saltbox house which was originally built in Hadley, Massachusetts and later restored in Greenwich, Connecticut. Irene Steiner was a member of the Mount Holyoke College Class of 1935.
The Irene Gillette Steiner Papers consist of scrapbooks regarding the history of the house from its building on the corner of West Street and Cemetary Road in Hadley between 1692 and 1710 (probably by Aaron Cooke), to its restoration in Greenwich in 1952. Included is a typescript history dated February 14, 1992 illustrated with photographs taken when the house was moved. The second volume contains documentary evidence of the house's history: letters (1952-1965), deeds (1692-1938), wills (1686-1889) and town meeting warrants (1761-1772). Handwritten documents are accompanied by transcriptions. All documents except the warrants and letters are copies.
