Nathan Hale Homestead

(1 of 386)


Located in Coventry, CT

The historic farmstead of the Hale family of Coventry, owned and maintained by Connecticut Landmarks, is open to the public during the warmer months seven afternoons a week for guided tours, special hands-on programs, and summer classes. Capt. Nathan Hale (1755-1776), the Martyr Spy of the American Revolution, and his nine brothers and sisters grew up and worked on this farm. The house (1776), outbuildings and stone walls as well as what remains of the original 400 acres of farm fields are important reminders of the way most Americans lived at the time of the nation's founding.
