Hill-Stead Museum is a National Historic Landmark set on 152 pastoral acres overlooking the Litchfield Hills. The grounds are accented by stately trees, seasonal gardens and over three miles of stone walls and woodland trails. A centerpiece of the property is the c. 1920 Sunken Garden designed by renowned American landscape architect Beatrix Farrand.

The Museum boasts a 1901 Colonial Revival house, designed by pioneering female architect Theodate Pope Riddle (1867-1946) in conjunction with the New York firm McKim, Mead & White. Ms. Pope built the home to showcase her father's magnificent collection of furnishings and Impressionist masterpieces. The Museum's collection includes paintings by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, James M. Whistler and Mary Cassatt, as well as numerous works on paper and Japanese woodblock prints.
Hill-Stead Museum has received approximately 91 profile views in the last three months.
