Hillstead Museum
Farmington, CT
Hillstead Museum is a country estate in the historic village of Farmington, Connecticut. It is a complete and intact Colonial Revival "country house" built by Alfred Pope around 1900. The Friends of Hillstead Museum commissioned an overall restoration plan for the 150 acre property. This study emphasized completion of the Sunken Garden and adjacent Woodland Garden as the first phases of restoration. Other site improvements included a new parking lot to make the museum more easily accessible for visitors, as well as guidelines for ongoing maintenance restoration of the grounds.
