The Phelps-Hatheway House & Garden highlights the luxurious lifestyle enjoyed by two wealthy 18th-century Connecticut Valley families, until their fortunes collapsed. From the sheer size of the house to the French wallpaper, the style and layout of the rooms and the grand staircase, the house represents the ultimate in high-style for early Federal architecture. The house is furnished with outstanding 18th-century Connecticut furniture and the grounds are landscaped with formal flower beds, an herb garden and flowering shrubs. The grounds also include a summer house and the entire property is surrounded by a striking white fence, which runs along Suffield’s Main Street.
