I grew up in Lordship and remember the "Waldemere" house at #1 Pauline St. At that time (1950's) it was owned by a gracious lady by the name of Ella Fleck. She often invited us kids in on rainy days to tell us stories of African safaris from her 4 poster bed. We were allowed to go upstairs from the servants quarters or kitchen area by means of a spiral staircase. Not sure if she was related to Mr. Barnum but to this day there is a row boat behind the house on the beach that has "Phinius T." inscribed on it. I know that because 50 yrs. later I returned for a visit and walked the same walk as i did as a young girl. I never forgot that house or the kind woman in it.

Connecticut Sam loves old mansions and get very upset when they are removed.
