Haslam Farmstead, Springfield

     Just up the road on Route-2 on the same side as the Hagan farmstead, going west, is this lovely Island farmhouse in the center gable style with a kitchen wing to the rear/south.
     I use to always notice this house as the owner made birdhouses in his retirement and sold them at the end of his driveway.  I've noticed in recent years the house is in need of repairs especially on the  left side of verandah as it's starting to settle.
     The house has many great details: a well proportioned verandah with gingerbread trim; a steep-pitched center gable (typical of the 1880's); a gable window with trapezoid style trim above; running eave gingerbread trim; 2-over-2 single hung windows; brick chimney; and window header detailing.
