Place:
Oliver Wolcott Senior House (Litchfield, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield -- Litchfield
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, historical information about the property, a reference print and an article.
General:
The 15 acre property was one of the parcels of land allotted to settlers when Litchfield was founded in 1719, and the original Georgian-inspired house, since expanded, was built for Oliver Wolcott Senior in 1753. The gardens installed by the current owner beginning circa 1978 recall the agrarian history of the region with fruit trees, a working chicken coop, and gates designed to suggest barn doors. There is one ancient apple tree on the property and old species plants and modern cultivars have been mixed in garden beds. Trees and shrubs were planted in front of the house for privacy and to reduce noise from the street, which would not been done in colonial times. There is a curving driveway with an island flower bed that also is bordered by flower beds and fruit trees. Behind the house there is a terrace with the remnants of an old well and long double borders planted with perennials, bulbs and tubers. A headless and footless remnant of a classical sculpture is located at the far end of the double borders in a stand of barberry and other shrubs. There are island flower beds in wet spots, a tall wooden fence with barn style gates surrounding a private low stone walled garden with a swimming pool, a guest house with its own ornamental garden, a vegetable garden and an apple orchard. A pond, formerly a dump, marks the start of a natural woodlands garden with native trees, shrubs and wild flowers.
There is little evidence of the original gardens but since each household was mostly self-sufficient there would have been a large diverse kitchen garden near the house; chickens, cows, pigs and horses kept in outbuildings; orchards of fruit trees including apples, pears, peaches, cherries, quince and apricots grown from stock brought from England; and fields of grains and forage crops for the livestock on land that was cleared down to the Bantam River. Oliver Wolcott Senior was one of Connecticut's signatories of the U.S. Constitution and George Washington stayed overnight at his house on September 23, 1790. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the 1970's. According to local lore a lead statue of George III that was torn down in New York City in 1776 was brought by ox-cart to Litchfield and melted down to make ammunition, reportedly done under an apple tree on this property. The event was recreated in 1936 with participants in costume. A reference print in the file shows the garden and participcants (including a young S. Dillon Ripley). The current owner found a musket ball near the wetlands flower beds on the south side of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include Oliver Wolcott Senior (former owner, 1753-1797); Frederick Wolcott, Huntington Wolcott (former owners, 1797-1843); Henry Migeon (former owner, 1843-1853); George and Alice Todd (former owners, 1853-1855); Thomas and Jenna Harney (former owners, 1855-1883); Alice Wolcott (former owner, 1883-1907); Alice Wolcott Brimley Sherman (former owner, 1907-1976).

Biographical / Historical:
James William Lucus was born in Abbeville, GA on 26 December 1895 to Jack and Hattie Dean Lucus. Despite the fact that both his father and mother worked - a railroad laborer and domestic servant, respectively --the family still struggled to maintain their simple existence. In one of his earliest recollections, Mr. Lucus describes his childhood home as, "…a one-room house of uncertain pedigree…" Yet the family persevered. In addition to her work as a domestic, his mother worked in the cotton and corn fields during planting and harvest seasons. As for his father, if local railroad work became sparse, Jack Lucus travelled to other parts of the state to find work.

Given these circumstances it is not surprising that James did not enter school until fourth grade. Shortly after he was enrolled, he was withdrawn so that he could work with his father cutting wood for railroad ties. This action was taken at the behest of the family's doctor, who felt that James needed to build his strength and bulk. A few years later, a stronger and older James William Lucus re-entered fourth grade. However, he could only attend school in the spring because he had to work the rest of the year. It was at this time that his parents separated and, since his mother's income was not sufficient to support the household, James had to step in to fill the financial void left by his father. His early education came to a temporary halt in 1911, when he graduated from eighth grade at the age of fifteen.

After graduation, James spent a year earning income as a railroad worker and cotton-picker; and to some extent he accepted these occupations as his lot in life. That all changed when family friend Charlie Jefferson suggested that he and James move to Waycross, GA to find better employment opportunities. They left in the spring of 1912 and both found jobs immediately. Buoyed by this initial success, Mr. Jefferson encouraged James to attend trade school at Tuskegee Institute.

James Lucus entered Tuskegee in 1913 and, as it was with his early education, he worked while attending school. He performed various jobs around the school during the day and took classes at night. In 1915 he earned his high school academic diploma and in 1916 he earned his applied electricity diploma.

The skills he acquired at Tuskegee Institute enabled him to serve in the U.S. Army's C.O. Company "F" 317th Engineers during World War I. In June 1918 his unit was deployed to France for nine months. Their primary mission was to dig trenches and dugouts in the battle zones. His unit returned on 31 March 1919 and Mr. Lucus was honorably discharged on18 April 1919.

Once he left the military in 1919 he moved to Chicago, IL, where he attended Lewis Institute. He earned a Bachelor of Science in 1923 and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1924. Unfortunately, his two degrees were not enough to secure an engineering job, so he decided to become a teacher. He completed his course work at the Chicago Normal School in 1925. The kid whose initial education experience was a sporadic four-year stint in a country grammar school would go on to have a 36-year teaching career with the Public Schools of Chicago.

A year after starting his employment as a teacher James Lucus married Ethel E. Minns, a dramatist. Mrs. Lucus was born in 1903. She studied theatre at the Chicago Conservatory from where she earned a diploma in 1935 and a Bachelor of Dramatic Art in 1940. Thereafter, she acted, danced, and sang her way through the Chicago arts scene. Later Mrs. Lucus established the E. M. L. Creative Theatre which presented performances in the Chicago area. The performances ranged from dramas to large scale musicals. The Theatre also offered a variety of classes for actors of all ages. Given her extensive involvement in Chicago's cultural life, she received awards and other recognition for her contributions.

James and Ethel Lucus remained married for sixty years. They had one child, Hildred, who followed in her father's footsteps, becoming a teacher with the Chicago Public Schools. Mr. Lucus died on 5 September 1986 as a result of injuries he sustained in two separated muggings. Mrs. Lucus died three years later in the early spring of 1990.
