The Coventry Farmers’ Market on the grounds of the Nathan Hale Homestead is an experience not to be missed. This market carries the tradition of being the largest farmers’ market in the state, featuring some of the best of Connecticut-grown, Connecticut-made products in one of the most unspoiled countryside settings in the state. Each week, the staff of the Homestead will lead a family-friendly activity to connect the history of the site with the theme of the market. Admission to the Nathan Hale Homestead is by regular admission and is not included in the Farmers’ Market program.
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.
What could be more pleasant than a summer afternoon in the country? A summer afternoon at the Phelps-Hatheway House & Garden, of course! Once again, Phelps-Hatheway’s museum will open for one day each month for tours of its collections. Come and immerse yourself in the 18th and 19th century as staff introduce you to the families who graced our site for hundreds of years. View the gardens and stop by our Visitor’s Center for charming gifts and a peek at the newest installation by artist Lynne Centore.
