This summer, I've made a resolution. I'm going to get rid of a lot of "stuff." What, exactly, is "stuff?" Well, a house can be divided into two categories: stuff and space. Space is the area that people walk around in. Stuff is the rest of it everything from furniture to books to papers to piles of miscellaneous items. Space is what allows a person to move comfortably around. Stuff is what takes up precious space.

In writing about Dr. William Merritt last week, I find that more information about him might be in order. The family was a vital part of the Norwalk scene for several decades and the Merritt House is an integral part of the West Main Street Historic District. Merritt was born in North Fairfield and came to Norwalk about 1890 to practice dentistry. He was married to Mary Ford in 1896. She was a daughter of Dr. James Ford, a physician whose home and office stood at 10 and 12 Benedict Ave., opposite the courthouse. They lived at 203 W. Main St. for 10 years until building a new house at 123 W. Main St. in 1906.
