The house tour took 20 minutes and we spent another 20 minutes looking around at the buildings outside. We spent a few minutes playing an old fashion game outside where players use a stick to toss a 12 inch ring to each other. My 8-year-old...More

There was a farmers market on the land so we stopped there for fresh produce and other items. The house is beautiful and large. We only did the free tour. I believe you can get a tour of the upstairs for a cost.

If you like history, particularly the Revolutionary War then Hale Homestead is a must. The tour gives you a real taste of life during that period. Our docent was very good and brought the house and grounds to life.

You may get a good glimpse of Colonial life here but Nathan Hale was hung 1 month before the family moved in to this homestead. More appropriately called Hale Homestead since his father and brothers lived here, but he never did.

Exploring the Nathan Hale Homestead is truly like stepping back in time. The house is beautifully preserved with authentic furnishings of the time period. The story of Nathan is well told and illustrated by the desk he sat at and the bedroom he used. Staff...More
