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.
