Solomon Linsley was a Civil War veteran and well known builder in North Haven. He constructed Memorial Town Hall, as well as many of the Victorian homes in North Haven’s center block. His carpenter’s box is on display at the North Haven Historical Society; it is a large trunk, most plain and unremarkable on the outside, but with a fabulously ornate interior. Any craftsman today would appreciate the skill demonstrated in the decoration and tools of his work box.
