‘New Canaan Now & Then’ is sponsored by Brown Harris Stevens Realtors Joanne Santulli, Karen Ceraso, Bettina Hegel and Schuyler Morris. The stone house at 1 Wahackme Lane was built in 1930 by architect Calvin Kiessling. Mr. Kiessling was born in Boston and practiced there for a few years. He moved to New Canaan in 1921 and, a year later, spearheaded an effort to rebuild part of the business section of town to make it more attractive. The Colonial Revival Style that Kiessling favored is evident in the New Canaan Playhouse and the bulk of modern day Elm Street.
