OLD HALSEY HOUSE, South Main Street, Southampton. Built by Thomas Halsey on this site in 1648, it is one of the oldest English-type frame houses in the state. Contains 17th- and 18th-Century furnishings, a Dominy clock and a rare 16th-Century "Breeches'' Bible.
(Check out Genesis 3:7. Most Bibles state Adam and Eve used fig leaves to make "aprons'' to cover themselves; this one, a Geneva Bible, states "breeches.'')
