Many Happenings at Hatheway House

Print More

Savor the waning days of summer and the bounty of our area with a special evening at the Phelps-Hatheway House!

A pie contest will begin the celebrations on Friday, September 9 at 5 p.m. Entries will be accepted at the Visitor’s Center beginning at 4 p.m. The lucky winners will take home a prize and an individual or family membership to Connecticut Landmarks’ (CTL) historic properties.

An all-town picnic on our front lawn will follow the judging at 5:30 p.m. Bring a dish made with local ingredients and a place setting. A salad from our new raised beds (donated to the House by the Friends of Suffield!) and refreshments will be provided.

After dinner, join our costumed guides on a twilight tour of the historic property. Lanterns will lead you through the dimly lit corners of the House and transport you to the time before electricity illuminated our homes.

Admission for the picnic and lantern tour is $10, $5 for CTL members and Suffield residents. For more information and to register for the contest, dinner or tours, please contact the House at 860-668-0055 or
