The Phelps-Hatheway Home interprets life at the time of the American Revolution through the early 19th century. Merchant Shem Burbank built the house in 1761 but, as a Tory sympathizer, his business suffered during the Revolution. Land speculator Oliver Phelps purchased the home in 1788 and 6 years later flaunted his wealth by adding a large wing to the North side of the house. An architectural masterpiece, the home still features original 18th century French wallpaper, is furnished with outstanding 18th century Connecticut furniture, and is landscaped with a formal garden.
