Built in the mid-1700s by order of the King of Spain as the residence of his royal Treasurer, Juan Esteban de Peña, this First Spanish Period home eventually became the property of Connecticut doctor Seth Peck, whose family lived here for 94 years. In 1892, the home became part of the Women’s Exchange, which helped down-on-their-luck women get back on their feet. Today you can tour the place and see 18th-century American antiques and hear stories about what it was like to live in the Oldest City when, well, it wasn’t so old.
