The Hill-Stead Museum is a colonial style house built in 1901 by architect Theodate Pope for her father. It is located in Farmington.
Several of the rooms are open to visitors and display collections of fine art and furnishings.
The grounds around the museum were landscaped by Warren Manning and feature, among other attractions, a 'ha-ha' wall and an octagonal flower garden. A ha-ha wall is a type of construction that is preserving the view while providing a barrier.
