Explore the history of Hill-Stead Museum, a lovely Colonial Revival-style house built in 1901 and located in Farmington, Connecticut.
The house was designed by the pioneering female architect Theodate Pope Riddle as a retirement home for her father and mother, Alfred and Ada Pope. Alfred was an avid art collector, most known for purchasing paintings by notable French Impressionist artists Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt.

This tour will virtually transport you to Hill-Stead and take you through the home room-by-room weaving in the enriching history of the Pope family.
