Free Admission - 6,000 square feet 18th-century farmhouse located on Lighthouse Road on the east shore of New Haven harbor

A great example of early Connecticut living in a beautiful part of the city across the river known as THE ANNEX or Morris Cove. This amazing old historical house is totally complete and original. It is one of the best kept historical homes that I have ever visited (move over Betsy Ross). There really is a secret room to protect the owners from the Indians, I was in it. While in the area visit Fort Hale Park and learn about The English Army burning down New Haven and enjoy Light House Park.

It was designed by Henry Austin for James Dwight Dana who was one of the leading scientists of the 19th century and one of Yale's most distinguished professors - Area: 2,428 m² - Italianate Architectural style

The Dana House consists of three roughly rectangular painted brick sections, 2-1/2 stories in height, with a low-pitch hip roof. The main block, apparently adapted from a stock pattern by New Haven architect Henry Austin, has a three-bay front facade, with a single-story porch extending across its width, supported by turned posts. The building's roof has typical Italianate wide eaves, with a wooden soffit and corbelled brickwork arches underneath. A square cupola rises above the main block.

Mon - Sun : 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Our group visited the Cemetery and walked the grounds where we were able to see where many great figures in American History are buried including Noah Webster and Eli Whitney. On the 4th of July a stirring parade led by a horse named Huckleberry , the Blue Coats and the Red Coats , led a large group of local residents and tourists to different spots. The crowd was treated to readings and storytelling. The Declaration of Independence was read at the end. A very educational 4th of July.
