Nathan Hale Schoolhouse, East Haddam

#10 of 10 in Things to do in East Haddam
The restored red schoolhouse, located since 1900 atop the hill in back of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, is over 200 years old and served as a school from 1750 to 1799. During these years it was located on the green at the junction of Main Street and Norwich Road in East Haddam. In 1800 it was moved north on Main Street and located just in front of the present Nursery School building, where it remained until 1899 as a private residence for Captain Elijah Attwood and his descendants. On April 26, 1899 Judge Julius Attwood presented the schoolhouse to Colonel Richard Henry Greene of New York, in trust, to be turned over to the Connecticut Sons of the Revolution. On July 26, 1974 the Connecticut Sons of the Revolution deeded the 8 acres and the building to the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American Revolution who maintain it to this day. It has been authentically furnished by the Daughters of the American Revolution, with desks, tools and tables popular during the mid-seventeen hundreds.

  • A quaint little schoolhouse all alone on the banks of the CT River. Well preserved and taken care of. There are also three graves there of old time patriots  more »
  • A lovely stroll from Bishopsgate Inn with spectacular views of the Connecticut River. Love to learn the history of the area.  more »
  • A little gem of CT history. Volunteers open the building, some know more then others. All volunteers are welcoming people and help answer questions to the best of their ability. Many are members of local SOR or DAR chapters and are deeply interested in genealogy, American history, and this local area.
