Description and history

The Benomi Case House is located in what is now a suburban residential area of northwestern Windsor, on the north side of Rainbow Road between East Granby and Hamilton Roads. It is a 2-1/2 story masonry structure, built of brick with stone trim and covered by a gabled roof, measuring about 72 by 27 feet (21.9 m × 8.2 m). It faces roughly east, and is five bays wide and four deep, with two end chimneys on each side. The main facade has a center entrance with sidelights and a transom window above. The side gables, framed in wood, are fully pedimented, and have rectangular windows with tracery at their centers. A single-story ell with garage extends to the north. The property also includes a 19th-century shed.

The house was built in 1834 by Benomi Case, a farmer. After Case's son Otis died in 1888, the house was purchased by Manley Snow, in whose family it remained for nearly 100 years. The house is a simple and elegant example of the Greek Revival.
