Watch the narrated video. This is one of the oldest homes in Russell. It was built circa 1772.The Titus Doolittle Homestead was used as a tavern and the town's first post-office. It sits on nearly an acre across the street from the Westfield River and Tekoa Mountain conservation area. You'll love the historic authenticity of this Georgian style, center chimney home.There is an enclosed porch from where the kitchen is accessed through French doors.The old fireplace with a baking oven, the wide-plank floors, and exposed beams are elegantly preserved.The wood paneled dining room also has a fireplace, while two mail slots still serve as reminders of its post-office days. The formal living room also has wood paneling and a fireplace. The original period staircase also remains.
