The Sarah Whitman Hooker Homestead

This site  The Web 

In 1720 when John Seymour built “my mansion house on Four Mile Hill in the West Division”
the thought that he was building for the next 300 years most likely did not cross his mind, but
this is the legacy he left us. Proudly it stands, having done that most unlikely thing -- survive
into an urban environment at the turn of the 21st century.

The Homestead stands as a reminder of:
the Colonial experience,
the struggle for Independence,
the making of a Republic,
and the building of a Nation. 
The Homestead was preserved and restored to the period 1720 - 1830, the year in which Sarah Whitman Hooker left Connecticut. It is maintained and kept open to the public by the Sarah Whitman Hooker Foundation, Inc. The Foundation's collections on display include porcelain, glassware,  furniture, clothing and implements for daily living.  While some textiles in the collection date from the period of the Homestead, others are reproductions made to the Foundation's specifications.  Period wallpapers were  reproduced to patterns found during the preservation process.
