The gift of land referred to in the 1970 note from Dick Tietjen refers to a piece of marshland donated, by Quit-Claim deed, by Richard Drudi, Jr. and Richard T. O’Connell, both of Old Saybrook, to the Saybrook Land Conservancy. The records include the quitclaim deed and warranty deed for the Meadowwood property, for lot #17. This marshland is referred to in several places as “less than one acre,” .3 acre, and 3.20 acres.
