The Mott house is located on the south side of Middle Country Road. It is just east of Homestead drive, which was known as Earth Road in the 1800's. Earth Road connected Coram and Yaphank. The house is directly across from the Coram police station. The home was built in 1824 on land originally owned by William C. Howell. The home was built on stones laid on the ground.

The original parcel consisted of 30 acres. The 1870 census has Albert Mott and his wife Joanna living in the house with their seven children. Mr. Mott and his son William had their occupations listed as seaman.

The Mott's turned the home and farm over to their daughter Lavina and her husband Dr. Isaac Smith.

The home still retains many of its original features. Some of the windows in the front of the house still have original glass panes. The original plank floors are on the second floor, and the original cherrywood stair railing is still there.

Over the years the house has become the victim of neglect. Members of local civic organizations would like to see the house restored before another part of our rich history is destroyed.
