Topsmead State Forest is a Connecticut state forest located in the town of Litchfield. It was formerly the summer residence of Edith Morton Chase, daughter of Henry Sabin Chase, first president of the Chase Brass and Copper Company. She left the house and its grounds to the state of Connecticut on her death in 1972. The estate house, built in 1929 to a design by RIchard Henry Dana, is a fine example of a Tudor Revival country estate house, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • Nestled in the Litchfield Hills, this place remains a piece of the past. Well manicured and a great place to soak up the natural beauty.

  • A wonderful place to take a walk or sit under a tree and read a book. There is lots of history here. The state has done a nice job in maintaining the meadows, hummingbird and butterfly gardens. Check out the very cool original manor house. There are marked walks for everyone. Bring some sunscreen and enjoy an afternoon. Best thing, it's free
  • Great state forest for a nice relaxing stroll. Great opportunity to teach young ones about creation. Lots of spaces for picnics. It helps you feel like you have left town on vacation.
