The Stanley-Whitman House is a historic house museum in Farmington, Connecticut. Built c. 1720, it is one of the town's oldest houses. A well-preserved saltbox with post-medieval construction features, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. The house is now marketed as a "living history center and museum that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in Colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture."
