Things to do in Connecticut

  • Mark Twain House Mark Twain House and Museum Hartford Connecticut
    From 1874 until 1891, Mark Twain or Samuel Langhorne Clemens, lived in this magnificent home in Hartford, Connecticut.  The 19 room Victorian Gothic home became a National Historic Landmark in 1962, and was the site where he wrote some of his best works including; The Gilded Age, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, A Tramp Abroad, Huckleberry Finn, Life on the Mississippi and The Prince and the Pauper.  The front hall floor is composed of marble, his bed a decorative Venetian style, the mantel was from a Scottish castle and very intricately carved, Tiffany glass throughout, 7 bedrooms and bathrooms; all set on 3.5 acres of land.  The top floor was the billiards room and Twain's writing study; and off limits to all but the cleaning staff.  There was a big schoolroom on the second floor where Mrs. Clemens taught their children; and the children had an area for themselves with a nursery and the classroom was also used as a playroom.  It was an ornate house for the day and no one is sure how much was spent on the total amount.  It was purchases with Mrs. Clemens inheritance money.  After The Adventures of Tom Sawyer became a big seller, Mark decided to renovate the house and enlisted the services of Louis Comfort Tiffany to oversee the interior decorating of the home.  His neighbors were quite well known in their own right; Harriet Beecher Stowe and Isabella Beecher Hooker.  The house contains over 50,000 articles of historic significance, including; furnishings, manuscripts and photographs.

  • Wadsworth Atheneum
    The oldest public art museum in the nation is the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford Connecticut, as well as being the biggest museum in the state.  The almost 200,000 square foot building is home to fantastic treasures of American and French impressionist paintings, masterpieces, contemporary works, Hudson Rivers school landscapes, early American furniture and decorative arts.  The castle similar building in downtown Hartford was built in 1842, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.  The museum contains about 50,000 works of art, with ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian bronzes, paintings from the Baroque, Renaissance, French and American impressionist periods, 18th century French porcelains, with Meissen and Sevres; early African-American art; early American clothing and decorations, Hudson River School landscapes, historical artifacts and more.  The entire collection contains items from over 5000 years of world history.  Outside the building is a statue of Nathan Hale by Enoch S. Woods and another a bit further is one by Bela Pratt.  A number of firsts were instigated here, among them, the first museum to get works by Salvador Dali, Piet Mondrian, Balthus, Frederic  Church, Michelangelo and many other world famous artists.  The first exhibition of surrealism was opened in 1931, first Picasso retro was in 1934, the world première of the opera Four Saints in Three Acts, by Stein and Thomson and many more.

  • Butler-McCook Homestead
    This is the oldest house still standing in the city of Hartford, built in 1782, and the same family lived in the house until it was donated to the Landmark society in 1971.  The furnishings, antiques, family possessions and Victorian toys are still there, showing the chronological evolution of the American family.  The restored Victorian garden is still as pristine as it was over 2 centuries ago, when first landscaped by Jacob Weidermann.  The family was made up of doctors, missionaries, globe trotters, pioneering educators, social reformers, artists and industrialists.  The Connecticut crafted furniture was made in the state during the Revolution era, and a samurai armor suit was brought back from a trip to Japan.  The families own words have been incorporated into the Main Street History Center's keystone exhibition; when the street was a clapboard neighborhood with taverns and artisan shops into the glitzy glass, steel and stone monoliths that now house financial, governmental, cultural and industrial companies.

Mystic Seaport       Mystic Seaport Connecticut
Situated on the banks of the Mystic River and in the city by the sea Mystic, the Museum of American and the Sea is a living maritime museum of history that includes sailing ships, boats, crafts and other memorabilia of a 19th century seafaring village.  With over 60 buildings in their original pristine condition, historically significant and rare, these buildings were moved to a 37 acre site along the waterfront and completely restored.  The museum was built in 1929 as the Marine Historical Association and acquired the Charles W. Morgan in 1941.  It is the last surviving wooden sailing whaler in the world.  It was one of the first living museums in the country with historical buildings and craftsmen showing how everything was done through the years of history.  Many of the ships docked here are the sole type of vessels in the world that are left and sailable.  There are 16 of these wonderful ships left, with four of them being designated National Historic Landmarks.  Another very prominent building in the museum is the Preservation Shipyard, where the tools and techniques of the times are shown and used to take care of these magnificent vessels.  Commemorating the 200th anniversary of the end of slavery in Great Britain, the Amistad left New Haven in 2007 on a transatlantic journey of 14, 000 miles going to Great Britain, Lisbon, West Africa and the Caribbean taking the same route that the slave ship did so many years ago.

Essex Steam Train and Riverboat
The Valley Railroad Company started in 1868, when James C. Walkeley received a state charter to build and start the company.  He was the president of the Charter Oak Life Insurance Company in Hartford, and had tried in the late 1830s but failed.  During the late 1860s, the survey crews began and since there weren't any major obstructions, the first train ran the line in 1871.  It went through some tough economic times and was taken over by the Hartford and Connecticut Valley Railroad in 1880.  In 1892, the New Haven Railroad took control, and over the next fifty years, saw a steady decline in the business.  The last train ran in 1968 when the railroad company failed, and the state took control in 1969.  It leased the line to the Valley Railroad Company in 1970 and by the next year, the railroad was steaming up and down the lines.  The riverboat steams up and down the Connecticut River Valley giving wonderful  views of the valley's gorgeous landscapes and scenes.  The MV Becky Thatcher is 70 feet and a Mississippi style riverboat that will take 220 people on a grand sightseeing tour.  You will take a 30 minute ride on the train to get to the boat landing.  It is a wonderful excursion for the day and will take you back in time to the easy going days of yesterday.

  • Fort Griswold Battlefield State ParkFort Griswold Battlefield State Park Connecticut
    In the Revolutionary War, the city of New London was the home port of many privateers that harassed the British supply ships trying to bring their cargoes into New York City, where the British were stationed.  The booty or cargos were brought to the warehouses in New London and stored there until something could be done to move it.  These huge warehouses brought great wealth to the merchants and ship owners that called the city home.  In 1781, the city needed a fort to protect it from any invading English ships, however, the biggest structure in progress was the one called Fort Trumbull, but it  was unfinished.  Somewhat further along, but on the opposite shore was Fort Griswold, which had a great view of the harbor and countryside, but not an up-to-date or effective fort.  But it was in decent condition in 1781 and the magazines were full.  That summer, the British wanted to distract Washington from his goal of marching south, so they decided to start a diversion in New London which was a big supply center, and destroy the rebel pirate ships.  Benedict Arnold was given the task, having just deserted the Americans the year before.  On September 6, 1781, the British invaded the city and destroyed most of it with fires.  Colonel Eyre, the English commander sent a message to the fort to surrender, but Colonel Ledyard declined.  The message was resent with the understanding that no quarter would be given.  The answer was the same and the British advanced on the fort, but artillery fire killed many and wounded more.  The well trained and disciplined troops kept going and soon hand to hand combat was happening.  They made their way into the fort and Colonel Eyre told his men to stop fighting, but men on both sides continued. Two different versions have been told, but the Americans said that the colonel surrendered his sword and was killed with it and the rest of the defenders murdered.  The British denied this.

  • Gillette Castle State ParkGillette Castle State Park East Haddam Connecticut
    Set high on a hill overlooking the Connecticut River, the castle was the former home of stage actor, playwright and stage manager William Gillette, who is known for his performances of Sherlock Holmes.  Gillette saw the hill while on his houseboat sailing along the river in 1913.  He went up and saw the incredible views and bought 115 acres of land.  By 1919, the castle was finished at a cost of a million dollars and he designed the castle himself.  It was 5 feet thick at the base and 3 feet at the top, and he designed a trolley to bring the material up the hill.  It took 5 years to construct with 24 rooms and 47 doors; using hand carved puzzle locks that were designed by Gillette also.  The main salon was 30 by 50 feet with ceilings at 19 feet.  A complex design of mirrors were used so that he could stage great entrances at the right moment using these surveillance mirrors.  He called it seven sister and had a small train system built 3 miles long; traveling around the property, over numerous bridges and a tunnel.  He strolled the grounds with famous visitors, like Albert Einstein, Calvin Coolidge and Yukio Ozaki, former mayor of Tokyo. 

  • Sherwood Island State Park
