About Connecticut Landmarks
Founded in 1936 as the Antiquarian & Landmarks Society, we are a state-wide network of eleven significant historic properties that span four centuries of New England history. Our museums are starting points, “landmarks in every sense,” for deeper exploration and greater appreciation of the Connecticut experience. We have something for everyone: from captivating house tours to lovely historic gardens, history celebrations and remarkable collections of art and antiques. Our real-life stories, as told through our collections, make history matter.
The historic, landmark properties span four centuries of Connecticut history and include: the Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden, Bethlehem; the Butler-McCook House & Garden and Main Street History Center, Hartford; the Buttolph-Williams House, Wethersfield; the Amasa Day House, Moodus; the Hempsted Houses, New London; the Isham-Terry House, Hartford; the Nathan Hale Homestead, Coventry; the Palmer-Warner House, East Haddam; and the Phelps-Hatheway House & Garden, Suffield.
