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.
