Gillette Castle

18 Jul

This afternoon, we ventured south to East Haddam, CT, to visit the Gillette Castle State Park. The house sits atop a mountain range known as the Seven Sisters. It was built by William Hooker Gillette, noted actor, director, and playwright. He was probably best known for his portrayal on stage of Sherlock Holmes in the early part of the 20th Century. It is a unique home with a beautiful view of the Connecticut River and surrounding countryside. We enjoyed our visit and tour of the house.
