He suggested a single - and distinctly American - way to spell a word, such as "logic" instead of "logick."This home was built for Noah Webster's retirement, but he never really retired. He spent many years working on his publications here.Noah Webster lived in this home with his wife, two daughters and at least one free African-American servant. Webster wrote many of his publications here. His famous American Dictionary of the English Language was published in 1828, when he lived here. It had more than 70,000 word entries.Built in 1823 in New Haven, Connecticut.
