Denison Homestead

Stonington, CT

The Denison Homestead is located only minutes from downtown Mystic.  The entire homestead comprises about 160 acres of land, owned by the Denison Society, a society of descendants whose mission is to connect descendants and the community with the history, land and environment of this 300 year old family farm.  The land has been kept in it's natural state for over 300 years.  Part of the land is leased to the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center.  The building in the upper left is the Pequotsepos Manor, built in 1717 and restored in 1946.  It is currently a museum and each room depicts a different time period in American history.  It is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.  You can learn more about the Denison Homestead here.
