Cannonball House

The Cannonball House represents the Americans’ victory over the British during the Battle of Springfield. I found it surprising that it was one of the four buildings that did not get burned down by the British as they fled. I learned that even though the house has been renovated a bit, it is still the same house from the 1700s.
