The Property

Reverend Joseph Bellamy built a home for his family and theological seminary on the town green in 1754. Expanded and embellished over the years, the house was restored and an extensive formal garden developed in the early 20th century by the Ferridays of New York City. Today, the property serves as a breathtaking combination of natural and man-made beauty, featuring collections of heirloom roses, lilacs and peonies. Original barns and farm buildings lend charm to the landscape.


Facility rentals are available April to November.
The lawn between two barns may be tented for groups up to 150.
Outdoor seating for 50 may be arranged in the formal garden.
Interior rooms in the house, visitor center, and east barn accommodate small groups up to 30 people.
