Weir Farm National Historic Site [CT]

The Weir Farm National Historic Site is located in the summer retreat of famed artist J. Alden Weir. After several summers at the home, Weir transformed the location into a creative refuge for friends and fellow artists. Today, the home stands as a historic house museum, and also offers Weir Farm art center, which is an educational center and art museum.

The home offers guided tours, educational programs, workshops, field trip programs, and a gallery of artwork. The website offers a history of the home, visitor information, suggested readings for students, curriculum guides, and a calendar of events. In order to contact the website via email, use the "contact us" link located on the left side of the webpage.
