A National Historic Landmark, Hill-Stead Museum’s 1901 Colonial Revival-style house was designed by pioneering architect Theodate Pope Riddle to showcase the Impressionist masterpieces amassed by her father, Alfred A. Pope. Set on 152 hilltop acres, the grounds feature stone walls, woodland trails and a c. 1920 Beatrix Farrand-designed Sunken Garden.

A weekly Sunday Farmers Market featuring locally grown products will be taking place on the property Sunday, September 30, 11 am - 2 pm.
