This 142-acre property resides on the banks of Lake Pattagansett, a 128-acre freshwater lake. Nearly 300 years ago the King of England, George I, granted this property in Southeastern, Conn., to a man named Solomon Gee. Solomon was born in England in 1698 and eventually made his home in Connecticut after serving in the Royal Navy. Solomon became a clothier by trade before he passed away in April of 1769, seven years before the founding of America. The land has been in the Gee family since the royal deed was granted by King George I, and generations of Gees have lived and worked on the property since the early 1700s.Once known as Pattagansett Farm, the parcel borders the Yale Outdoor Education Center and is located near Scott Road. The land features 20-plus acres of water frontage along the lake, which offers aquatic activities such as fishing, boating and bird watching. Along the property there are also hiking trails, green pastures and beautiful stonewalls.Itâ€™s time for fresh roots to be planted and new memories to be made amidst the peace and beauty of this very special land. This parcel will make an excellent place for its new owner to build the home of their dreams.
