The land had been a gift outright, from architect Celia Imrey’s step-grandfather William B. Dinsmore to her grandmother, Lesley, on their wedding day in 1947.

Along with the land came a five-bedroom house, and Lesley Dinsmore christened the property “Witchwood,” because she thought the woods surrounding it “looked like witches lived there.” In the 1980s the parcel was subdivided.
