Butternut Farm

1654 Main Street , Glastonbury, CT 06033 USA (Show map)


This handsome home is without peer with respect to its collection of antiques and its architectural richness. Butternut Farm was built in two stages by Jonathan Hale, beginning in 1720, the year of his marriage. The interior of this classic Colonial house was painstakingly restored to its original condition by innkeeper Don Reid by exposing the original wide brick fireplaces, uncovering the broad pumpkin-pine floorboards and removing paint from the paneling on many of the rooms' walls.
