Samuel Huntington Homestead

Description:

The Huntington Homestead in Scotland, Connecticut, is the birthplace of Samuel Huntington, a distinguished statesman during the Revolutionary War and early Republic.

The remarkably well-preserved site includes an eighteenth-century house on its original foundation surrounded by acres of farmland, bordered by Merrick Brook. It includes old growth trees, stone walls, an abandoned road, and other interesting features.

The Huntington Homestead was a surprising discovery so late in the twentieth century, when most historic sites had already been enshrined or ravaged. It is a National Historic Landmark.
