This area on the eastern Connecticut coast was clear cut by the early 19th century so I assume the wood is not from nearby. Perhaps upstate a little. Any idea what this wood might be? Columns appear different from the deck. Grain looks nice with water splashed on it so I hate to paint it but assume that was the way it was done in 1884.
