EASTON — Old Glory stands proudly at the entrance of the white wood-and-brick colonial house at 12 Sport Hill Parkway in the Lower Easton neighborhood. The attractive front façade is punctuated by gray shutters and window boxes beneath the three windows on the second floor.
The eight-room house sits on a cul-de-sac off Sport Hill Road (Route 59), which leads motorists quite easily to the Merritt Parkway only about 2/10th of a mile away to the south, and to the Sacred Heart University campus just beyond the parkway. Also quite close by is the Yale-New Haven Health Medical Center on Park Avenue in neighboring Trumbull. Traveling north on Sport Hill Road brings motorists to the center of Easton, its public schools and a number of farms.
