His fame and fortune secure, he built the finest home on Captain's Row alongside the Mystic River. This extraordinary Italianate villa attracted admirers from miles around to gaze in awe at this splendid edifice, and it inspired many young men to embark upon a life at sea.

Williams, and the attentive stewardship of previous owners to insure that it withstood the passage of time.
