Fodor's Review

Built in 1782, this home housed four generations of Butlers and McCooks until it became a museum in 1971. Inside is Hartford's oldest intact collection of art and antiques, including furnishings, family possessions, and Victorian-era toys that show the evolution of American tastes over nearly 200 years. The beautifully restored Victorian garden was originally designed by Jacob Weidenmann.
