Connecticut Landmarks' Hempsted Houses has partnered with the Homeless Hospitality Center to collect donations of winter clothing to benefit the New London community. We will be accepting new hats and gloves in all sizes, and new and gently-used coats in all sizes. Donations of children's winter coats are especially appreciated.
In 2023, staff at three Connecticut Landmarks sites worked with local teachers and students through the Witness Stones Project to learn about the lives of people who were enslaved at our sites. Learn more about this project with Lynn Mervosh, Site Administrator, who was part of the process at the Phelps-Hatheway House & Garden.
