Overhills

I visited Putney, Vermont, today to see if I could locate the Overhills estate where MPF often retreated.   I stumbled upon a house that felt like it could be it on Overhills Road just off Putney Mountain Road.   I am wondering if anyone has ever visited the house and if there is any local history connected with MPF's life in the Putney community?Thanks for any insights.SteveSee More
