Nathan Hale Homestead
299 South St, Coventry, CT 06238
The Nathan Hale Homestead is a historic home in Coventry, Connecticut. Despite the name of the property, Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale never lived in the house. As a child, he did live in a home that was located in the same spot. This house was razed by his parents in order to create a larger living space for the family.
Connecticut lawyer George Dudley Seymour purchased the property in 1914 and restored the house to its original dignity, furnishing it with Connecticut antiques and artifacts, including Nathan Hale's trunk. Seymour was of the belief that the homestead was haunted.
Today, Connecticut Landmarks operates the house as a late 18th-century historic house museum.
