from "Springdale Remembered 1640-1949)" by Rosemary H. Burns, The Stamford Historical Society 1982, p. 87: David Philip Lindsley pictured on his "Hackett's Hill Farm" on the northwest corner of Eden Road and Hope Street in 1908. The height of the corn attests to the fact that Hequetch was an excellent planting ground.

"Hequetch" was the Indian name for the Springdale area.
