  • Wir sind gerade von einem phänomenalen Wochenende bei Piotr und Kay zurückgekommen, um das neue Jahr einzuläuten. Von Anfang bis Ende war Piotr ein ausgezeichneter Gastgeber - wir wurden mit Kaffee und Prosecco begrüßt, erhielten eine Führung durch das Haus und Piotr stellte sich zur Verfügung und beantwortete alle Fragen, die wir während unseres Aufenthalts hatten. Das Haus war einwandfrei und sehr sauber. All die Liebe, Arbeit und persönlichen, einzigartigen Details, die sie in dieses Haus gesteckt haben, zeigten sich an jeder Naht. Wir hatten den größten Teil des Wochenendes geregnet, aber die Kinder beschäftigten sich mit der reichlichen Auswahl an Spielen im Haus und natürlich mit dem großen Apple TV. Der Regen hinderte uns nicht daran, das wunderschöne Gelände zu erkunden. Wir hatten wirklich das Gefühl, dass das Haus auf einem Meditations-Retreat liegt. Die Küche war mit allem ausgestattet, was Sie sich vorstellen können, und wir hatten eine großartige Zeit mit Kochen, Lachen und wunderbaren Erinnerungen mit Freunden und Familie. Wir hoffen, bald zurück zu sein!

  • Kay & Piotr sind außergewöhnliche Gastgeber und ich wünsche ihnen nur gute Erfahrungen mit ihren Gästen. Ich hoffe, wer auch immer daran denkt, in seinem fabelhaften Zuhause zu bleiben, kümmert sich wirklich darum, weil sie so zuvorkommend sind. Ich hatte hier meinen 35. Geburtstag mit ein paar meiner engsten Freundinnen, wir bestellten chinesisches Essen, machten Frühstück, entspannten uns im Whirlpool, tranken Tee, spielten Spiele und schauten Urlaubsfilme und es war mit Abstand eines der denkwürdigsten Wochenenden, die ich hatte Ich hatte alles wegen des Ambiente, der Einrichtung, der großen Fenster, der expliziten Möbel, der schönen Aussicht und natürlich der fröhlichen Stimmung (wegen des extravaganten Zuhauses). Das Haus ist so groß und komplett von Natur umgeben, dass man denken könnte, es sei kalt, aber die Heizung hat uns überhaupt nicht enttäuscht. Wir waren während der gesamten Dauer unserer Reise angenehm warm und die Badezimmerböden sind beheizt! Alles war so sauber und die Gastgeber waren so nett, dass ich mein Bestes gab, um nach meinen Freundinnen aufzuräumen und es auf die gleiche Weise zu präsentieren. Ich war so glücklich, Piotr und Kay getroffen zu haben, weil sie wirklich außergewöhnliche Menschen mit schönen Seelen und positiver Energie sind. Das Haus war perfekt für eine erholsame Nacht in, jedes Zimmer war umwerfend schön! Das Design, die Fußbodenheizung, das schwimmende Bett, die großen Fenster, die eleganten Spiegel, die massiven Terrassen, alle mit Blick auf die Bäume und diesen wunderschönen künstlichen Teich im Hinterhof. Jeder einzelne meiner Freunde (einschließlich meiner selbst) lächelte in dem Moment, in dem wir uns auf den Moment unserer Abreise konzentrierten, von Ohr zu Ohr und ließ die schönsten und glücklichsten Erinnerungen in ihrem Haus zurück. Ich würde gerne wieder mit meiner Familie zurückkehren. Ich kann diesen Jungs nicht genug dafür danken, dass sie einen so einzigartigen Raum geschaffen und ihn auf Airbnb angeboten haben, damit andere ihn genießen können. Ich hätte mehr bezahlen können und mit diesem Haus zufrieden sein können. Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass jemand etwas Negatives sagt, denn wenn er es tut, kann ich mit Sicherheit sagen, dass er entweder bitter oder allgemein negativ ist. Dieser Ort hat uns umgehauen und ich konnte die Welt bereisen. Betrachten Sie sich als glücklich, wenn Sie diesen Ort buchen können, und seien Sie darauf vorbereitet, von dem Moment an, in dem Sie sich mit Piotr & Kay in Verbindung setzen, bis nach Ihrer Abreise eine erstaunliche Erfahrung zu machen. Ich denke viel über dieses Haus nach und es macht mich munter! Ich kann es kaum erwarten, dort andere Häuser zu überprüfen. So schön das Haus auch ist, die Gastgeber sind noch besser! Vielen Dank Piotr & Kay, es war wirklich eine Freude, euch beide zu treffen!

  • Unglaublich schöner Ort. Sehr zufrieden mit der gesamten Erfahrung.

    Allen2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Schönes Zuhause und exzellenter Service. AirBNB sollte diese Leute bezahlen, weil Leute wie Piotr und Kay gut für die Marke AirBNB sind.

  • Wir waren eine Gruppe von 10 Frauen, die im Hudson Valley eine Bachelorette feierten. Das Mission House war der perfekte Ausgangspunkt, um die Umgebung zu erkunden und fühlte sich gleichzeitig wie ein luxuriöser, erholsamer Rückzugsort an. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet und verfügt über viele komfortable Gemeinschaftsräume für eine große Gruppe. Wir liebten den ruhigen Platz im Freien und genossen es, nachts im großen Wohnzimmer abzuhängen. Wir können dieses Haus nur wärmstens empfehlen und hoffen, dass wir es bald wieder besuchen können! Danke Kay und Piotr!

    Jessica2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Alles war von Anfang bis Ende perfekt. Die Kommunikation war schnell und informativ vor unserem Aufenthalt. Sie haben uns getroffen und uns das Haus gezeigt. So viele lustige und einzigartige Details. Wir liebten es, im Schatten der Sitzgelegenheiten im Hinterhof zu sitzen, ein Glas Wein zu trinken oder alle 10 von uns beim Kochen auf der Kücheninsel zu helfen. Wir empfehlen. Einfacher Zugang zu einer Wanderung gleich die Straße hinauf, die wir nach dem Auschecken gemacht haben. Liebte es !!

    Jen2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wunderschöner Wochenendurlaub. Wir hoffen, dort wieder zu bleiben.

    David2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Piotr und Kays Zuhause war absolut wunderschön. Dieses Haus ist ein Kunstwerk mit einzigartigen Akzenten in alle Richtungen, und es wird eindeutig geliebt. Sie beantworteten alle Fragen, die ich hatte, sehr schnell und gaben mir wundervolle Informationen über die Umgebung sowie tolle Vorschläge für ein lokales Restaurant. Nochmals vielen Dank für einen schönen Aufenthalt!

Charnel Benner/Ski Resorts Hunt Ter HISTORY: The Hartford County town of Southington is located in central Connecticut on land incorporated from Farmington in 1779. By 1790, industry supplemented the community’s agricultural base with potash works, a button factory, saw mills, and a brass foundry. In the mid-1800s, the town’s Micah Rugg and Martin Barnes factory produced the first machine-made nuts and bolts and inspired other manufacturers to follow suit. Still later, local enterprises produced plumbing supplies, automobile parts, filters, and other goods. Southington today is an industrial, commercial, and residential community, but its agricultural roots remain. The town’s annual Apple Harvest Festival, for example, is enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. At the center of the Plantsville Historic District are several industrial complexes that were home to Southington's prosperous hardware industry which flourished in the mid and late nineteenth century. These manufacturing buildings are located along the Quinnipiac River and Penn Central Railroad (formerly the New Haven and Northhampton Railroad) that bisects the district and along the Eight Mile River that runs through the western edge of the district. A strip of commercial architecture runs east-west along Main and West Main Streets, connecting the Plantsville Historic District's two main residential concentrations. These areas are centered around the Plantsville Congregational Church on Church Street and the former Plantsville Baptist Church (now Faith Living Church) on Grove Street. A substantial strip of residential architecture also extends northward along Summer Street (formerly Water Street) near the course of the Quinnipiac River. The land in the Quinnipiac River flood plain is level; the terrain rises to the hills on Prospect Street and Summer Street on the north side of the district, and to Hillside Avenue and Grove Street on the south side. The Plantsville Historic District contains 248 buildings, of which 221 contribute to its architectural and historical significance. Of the 248 buildings, 166 are primary buildings — residences, stores, churches, and manufacturing facilities — and 82 are secondary buildings consisting primarily of barns and garages. Most of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings date from 1820 to 1935. ARCHITECTURE: Eleven different formal architectural styles can be identified in 99 of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings. The most prevalent style is Italianate, with 26 buildings, followed by Queen Anne (21), Colonial Revival (19), Victorian Gothic (8), Greek Revival (6), Bungalow/Craftsman (6), Shingle Style (5), Second Empire (3), Gothic Revival (2), Stick Style (2), and Late Gothic Revival (1). Primary buildings classified as "vernacular" or "no style" number 78, while 81 secondary buildings are identified. The majority of buildings in the Plantsville Historic District are single-family dwellings and their associated barns, garages, and other outbuildings. A number of single-family houses have been converted to multi-family dwellings, though with little or no change to the character of the buildings. Many of the houses such as those of Summer, West, Prospect and Elm Streets are located on deep lots with large setbacks. Streets such as Church, Grove, and South Main have smaller (but not crowded) lots. The houses in Plantsville typically display wood clapboard or shingle sheathing; flushboard and board-and-batten siding are also found. Wooden decorative elements such as bargeboards, brackets, and trusses are plentiful in the late nineteenth-century houses. A few of the barns and garages are embellished with architectural detail such as brackets, bargeboards, and cupolas, but most outbuildings are unadorned. Most of the houses are two stories in height, although one-story bungalows and cottages are scattered throughout the district. An occasional three-level tower rises above the average two-story height. The majority of houses are in good to excellent repair, with almost 100% occupancy throughout the district. Some have been altered with aluminum siding, enclosed porches, or new windows; however, most maintain a high degree of architectural integrity. The houses have well-tended lawns with mature deciduous and fir trees and abundant shrubbery. The industrial architecture is located in the Quinnipiac River and Eight Mile River flood plains. Most of these nineteenth and early twentieth century manufacturing complexes are currently occupied for industrial purposes or storage. The buildings range in height from one to four stories, and are constructed primarily of brick. Detailing such as brick corbelling, wooden brackets, and scrollwork embellished these otherwise utilitarian, vernacular industrial buildings. Many have newer aluminum or metal shed additions. Large paved areas surround most of the structures to facilitate parking, loading, and shipping functions. Plantsville's early commercial buildings consist of storefronts added to older dwellings. Many of the buildings have a gable-front orientation and are tightly spaced along the two main streets. Most commercial buildings are two or three stories, with commercial use of the first floor and residential, office, or meeting space occupying the upper levels. Brick and wood are the most common building materials. Most commercial buildings have little or no setback from the sidewalk, and little landscaping is evident. One public open space is found in the Plantsville Historic District — a small park located on Hillside Avenue between Grove and Maple Streets. Plantsville's six Greek Revival buildings illustrate a variety of forms common to the style. The Timothy Higgins House (1828) at 103 West Street uses the common form of a two-story, three-bay rectangular block with gable-front orientation, while the Samuel Clark House (c.1840) at 67 West Street employs a square main block with a pyramidal roof. The C.B. Cowles Store (1848) on West Main Street, with its gable-front orientation is an example of Greek Revival-style commercial architecture. A fully developed example of the Gothic Revival style is illustrated by the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866) on Church Street, designed by Josiah Cleveland Cady. The Plantsville Historic District's 26 Italianate buildings reflect the major variations of the style. The William Clark House (c.1860) at 40 Cowles Avenue is an example of a three-bay, square block house with a shallow hipped roof and centered one-story belvedere cupola. The Charles B. Cowles House (1873) at 35 Church Street employs a T-plan with a steeply pitched gable roof. The decorative bargeboards with acorn motif pendants reflects the influence of the Gothic Revival style. An example of Italianate style applied to commercial architecture is the John Collins Store at 756-762 Main Street (1840/1870). The Twichell/Ward House (1863) at 78 West Street provides an example of the Second Empire style. The house is dominated by its unusually broad and flared mansard roof and corner tower. The presence of dormers with steep gable roofs, carved bargeboards and pierced gable screens indicates the influence of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District contains eight Victorian buildings with strong Gothic influence. The seven residential examples possess elaborate decorative elements such as gable trusses and pierced screens contrasting simple plans and sheathings. A typical example is the James Brewer House (1866) at 302 Summer Street. An example of a simple Victorian Gothic cottage is found at 33 Church Street (c.1865). The 21 Queen Anne style buildings located in the Plantsville Historic District well illustrate the style's characteristic features — complexity of plan, asymmetry, combinations of exterior sheathings, and ornamentation. The William Cummings House (c.1890) at 28 Elm Street, with its highly asymmetrical plan and slender, two-story oriel with steeply flared roof and elaborate finial is the Plantsville Historic District's most complete example. A simpler, more vernacular expression of the style can be found at 28 Grove Street (c.1890). A large stock of Colonial Revival buildings, most of which are simple, vernacular expressions of the style are present in the Plantsville Historic District. An example of the Dutch Colonial style which employs the gambrel roof is found at 100 Church Street (c.1920). The most unusual Colonial Revival building is an early gas station at 740 Main Street (c.1910). The six Bungalow/Craftsman style houses located in the Plantsville Historic District illustrate the style's advocacy of simplicity in design, use of natural materials and a return to hand craftsmanship. The bungalow at 38 Elm Street (c.1920), with its simple plan, broad pitched roof, exposed rafters and cobblestone chimney is an example. Fifty-six primary buildings are not classified by a specific style. The residential architecture so identified is mostly two-story, wood-framed houses with minimal architectural detail. Industrial complexes range from the sprawling unembellished brick buildings of the Blakeslee Forging Company (1912) to the more decorative and refined H.D. Smith and Co. office (1882) on West Street. Significance The Plantsville Historic District is architecturally significant because of the outstanding quality, diversity, and high degree of preservation of its 258 buildings. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture documents the growth and development of a nineteenth-century industrial community. It contains excellent examples of eleven different architectural styles (plus vernacular examples) popular in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Plantsville Historic District contains many highly intact streetscapes. Included in the district is the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866), a Gothic Revival church designed by nationally prominent architect Josiah Cleveland Cady. It ranks as one of Connecticut's best examples of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District also includes remaining manufacturing buildings and complexes which gave Plantsville its industrial base. Architectural Significance The Plantsville Historic District is one of the finest concentrations of nineteenth century architecture in Southington. Contained in the Plantsville Historic District are all the architectural components of a nineteenth century industrial community — the manufacturing complexes, the houses of the industrialists and workers, and Plantsville's stores, churches and social halls. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture rivals or surpasses the concentrations of buildings at Southington Center which developed in a similar manner during the nineteenth century. In terms of the quality and quantity of architecture from that period, it surpasses Southington's other sub-centers of Marion and Milldale. The Plantsville Historic District's state of preservation is excellent, with the majority of the houses in very good condition and most of the original settlement pattern maintained. The outstanding architectural quality of the Plantsville Historic District arises in part from the breadth and variety of styles represented. Included in the Plantsville Historic District are many fine Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, Stick Style, Shingle Style, Colonial Revival, Late Gothic Revival and Bungalow/Craftsman style buildings as well as many examples of vernacular architecture.

  • Das Haus ist schön. Die Gastfamilie war sehr herzlich und freundlich. Wir haben unseren Besuch sehr genossen und können Ihnen wärmstens empfehlen, hier zu übernachten, wenn Sie die Möglichkeit haben!

  • Wir verbrachten 2 Nächte im Edmister House und genossen jede Minute, von Getränken auf der Terrasse, Frühstück im Wintergarten, Kaffee mit Ken und Tom, und schlafen im sehr bequemen Bett. Das "Cottage" ist anders als jedes andere Airbnb, das wir hatten, mit großen Zimmern, wunderschönen architektonischen Details, viktorianischen Möbeln und einzigartigem Dekor. Ken war besonders begeistert von Pittsfield und den Berkshires und bot großartige Tipps zu Sehenswürdigkeiten, Essen und Cocktails. Das Haus ist nah genug an der Innenstadt von Pittsfield, dass wir zum Abendessen beide Nächte gehen konnten. Wir werden zurückkehren!

  • Dieses Haus ist wunderschön! Es gibt schöne Veranden / Decks und einen Garten. Mein Zimmer war geräumig und das Bett war super bequem. Da ist ein kleiner Flügel. (Schade, ich hatte keine Zeit, es zu spielen.) Das Frühstück war abwechslungsreich und lecker. Es ist in einer guten Lage für die Innenstadt von Pittsfield sowie schöne Außenanlagen. Direkt neben Lenox. Ein toller Wert. Gastgeber waren sehr gut in der Kommunikation.

Wraparound Porch When I give my guests a tour of the Captain's House and bring them out to the wraparound porch with the awesome river views, the lush green trees across the water, the gentle sloping lawn to the tennis court and dock…they absolutely melt. Most of my guests enjoy using the porch, complete with lighting and power, as an outdoor family and dining room.
    Knowles Landing: This quiet River oasis was once a destination for vacationers to get out of the City back during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many would travel by steamboat to the Landing where there was a steamboat house for tickets and baggage (the steamboat house burned down before the property was purchased, but the foundation still remains in front of the dock). Shipbuilding History: Situated atop a commanding hill, this landmark Victorian was built in 1886 by the daughter and son-in-law of local steamboat Captain Edward W. Simpson. Middle Haddam was home to more than a dozen sea captains – some credited with capturing British ships off Long Island during the Revolutionary War. Trade to the West Indies is documented as far back as the 1770s. The local taverns, shops and inns, which were later converted to lovely homes and a local library, enjoyed financial success until the early 1930s when steamboat service died out along the Connecticut River. The Connecticut River: The Connecticut River has been named one of the “Last Great Places” by the Nature Conservancy. One of the most beautiful rivers in the world, it has no industrialization along its shores and its waters are rated clean enough for anything but drinking. It is a summer breeding ground for osprey and the largest concentration of wintering eagles on the East coast when it is a common sight to see eagles flying above the River in search of food. The Neighborhood: Walk to the Middle Haddam Library, just up the street with a wonderful collection of books, DVDs and historical references, or take a stroll down Shad Row past the waterfalls and onto Shipyard Road. The Middle Haddam Post Office is also an easy 10-minute walk over a wooden bridge off of Blacksmith Road. Nearby: Stop & Shop and other stores are just 2 miles away up RT 66E. Less than a mile away is the best takeout pizza in the area. Great hiking at the 130-acre Hurd State Park is just 2.2 miles south off of 151, or travel east on 66 and follow the signs to the East Hampton Air Line State Park trailhead – a great path that extends 22 miles to Windham. Local Entertainment, Theatre & Art: Mohegan Sun Casino is an easy 32-mile drive, and the award-winning Goodspeed Opera House is 9.5 miles off of Route 151 (Fiddler on the Roof is playing from 6/27-9/7. Be sure to visit nearby Chester with wonderful one-of-a-kind shops, fantastic restaurants, the Norma Terris Theatre and Connecticut’s acclaimed contemporary impressionist artist Leif Nilsson’s Studio – all less than 15 miles away. Destinations: Gillette’s Castle and State Park are just 13 miles south in East Haddam. The visitor’s center and tour provides an exceptional view into William Gillette’s inspiring life as an inventor, playwright and actor. In neighboring Portland, check out the Brownstone Exploration & Discovery Park – an outdoor adventure sports park with rock climbing, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, cliff jumping, scuba diving and much more! Kayakers: For the sports-minded adventurers, you might enjoy paddling down the CT River to the wonderful Blue Oar Restaurant (we can arrange to pick you and the kayaks up at the Blue Oar). Outside waterfront casual dining with a Caribbean flair. It’s BYOB, open 7 days a week through Labor Day for lunch and dinner. You want to plan to paddle down with the current going out.

Challenging and enjoyable for players of all ages – excellent turf conditions, restaurant, pro shop and friendly staff.

  • Dies war unsere erste Airbag- & B Vermietung und es war eine tolle Erfahrung! Sue war sehr zuvorkommend in ihrer Besprechung des Hauses und bietet Informationen über die Region zur Verfügung zu stellen. Zusätzliche Details wie Blumen und frisch gemahlenen Kaffee wurden sehr geschätzt. Das Haus war besser als angekündigt. Es ist gut ausgestattet und sehr komfortabel. Es ist sehr schön eingerichtet und hat alles, was Sie für einen Urlaub Wochenende benötigen. Es war ein perfekter Ort, den Geburtstag meines Mannes zu feiern. Die Ansichten sind erstaunlich. Die Lage ist perfekt, in der Nähe Restaurants und Sehenswürdigkeiten, obwohl wir nur selten das Haus verlassen. Wir genossen die Ruhe der Lage, die große Küche und komfortabel eingerichtet. Dies ist ein toller Fund und wir wollen definitiv zurückkehren.

Unsere Familie hatte eine so schöne Zeit in diesem spektakulären Hause, von auf der Veranda sitzen und die Sonnenuntergänge zu sammeln im Wohnzimmer für Familie Chats beobachten an unsere Kinder um für improvisierte Drum-Sessions gesammelt, Mahlzeiten rund um den geselligen Küchentisch teilen, Spielkarten und andere Spiele zusammen und bauen ein Feuer unten am Fluss ... so viele Familienerinnerungen wurden hier gemacht! ! Das Haus strahlt die Liebe seines Besitzers, Sue. So viele persönliche Note begrüßen Sie im ganzen Haus. Sue war so freundlich, uns frisch geerntete Äpfel und frisch gemahlenen Kaffee zu verlassen. Sie bot Anregungen zu Restaurants in der Umgebung und war ein wunderbarer Gastgeber. Das Haus selbst war makellos und war mehr als ausreichend für die 7 von uns. Wir nutzten die Nähe von Hurd Park für ein paar Familienwanderungen und die Airline Trail für unsere Samstagmorgen laufen! Wir hatten das Glück, das Haus während der Höhe der Herbst Laub-Saison und die Aussicht von der Veranda zu besuchen waren atemberaubend! Wir können nicht wieder warten, um zurückzukehren. ... Vielleicht im Sommer, wenn wir einen Vorteil aus dem Kajak auf dem Fluss zu nehmen! Nochmals vielen Dank Sue für Ihr Zuhause zur Welt öffnen zu genießen! Sie wollen nicht, eine Gelegenheit zu verpassen, hier zu bleiben! !

  • Ein Traumferienhaus! Wir waren für zwei Wochen mit drei Kindern im Alter von 4 bis 10 Jahren sowie Großeltern und einer Tante. Super stylischer Raum, der gleichzeitig sehr komfortabel ist - viel Platz für verschiedene Familienmitglieder, um verschiedene Aktivitäten unabhängig voneinander oder als Gruppe durchzuführen. Der Pool war perfekt - warm und sonnig - und es gab auch eine große abgeschirmte Veranda und ein schaukelndes Liebessitz für diejenigen, die im Schatten bleiben wollten. Moderne Annehmlichkeiten, einschließlich zentraler Luft. Erstaunliche Ansichten von der hinteren Veranda u. Vom Pool u. Vom Jacuzzi (und von fast jedem Raum des Hauses zum Aufladen). Absolut perfekt!

  • Was für ein wundervoller Aufenthalt wir in diesem wunderschönen Haus in Guilford hatten! Das Haus ist ein perfekter, luxuriöser Ausgangspunkt, um diesen erstaunlichen Teil der Küste Neuenglands zu erkunden. Alles an diesem Raum ist wunderschön und perfekt für eine Familiengruppe wie unsere. Das Haus ist hervorragend ausgestattet mit allem, was man so braucht, und die Aussicht ist einfach himmlisch. Mary und Drew waren die perfekten Gastgeber, mit nichts zu viel Mühe für sie. Als wir ankamen, gab es ein paar nette Besonderheiten, und sie waren für alles, was wir während des Aufenthalts brauchten, erreichbar. Das Schwimmbad im Garten ist riesig und hat so viel Spaß gemacht, dass wir das Haus kaum verlassen mussten. Es gibt so viel Platz auf dem Haus, um sich auszubreiten und einfach zu entspannen und die Aussicht aus jedem Fenster zu genießen. Ich kann dieses Haus nicht genug empfehlen. Wenn Sie eine luxuriöse Familienbasis in einem atemberaubenden Teil der USA suchen, dann ist dies absolut perfekt.

    Martin2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Meine Frau, zwei Töchter und ich verbrachten die Woche zwischen Weihnachten und Neujahr in diesem schönen Haus in Guilford. Das Haus könnte nicht besser ernannt oder durchdachter gestaltet werden. Vom gut bestückten Kaminofen über den schönen Weihnachtsbaum bis zu den unglaublichen Aussichten war das Haus der perfekte Ort, um die Ferien zu verbringen. Drew und Mary waren aus der Ferne unglaublich reaktionsschnell und ausgezeichnete Gastgeber. Wir empfehlen dringend.

    Welcome to The Taggart House. This stunning estate was constructed in 1850 by noted Stockbridge resident Henry Dwight Sedgwick. For over 150 years, several notables called The Taggart House home, including the psychologist: Erik Erikson. Serving as a Bed & Breakfast for much of the 2000s, The Taggart House was completely restored in 2014 by its current owners. The estate now serves as a vacation rental with The Ballroom used for special occasions only.
    The Taggart House is an open, warm home filled with cozy and communal places to celebrate.
    Stockbridge is the quintisential New England mountain town. Two of Norman Rockwell's most famous paintings were settings literally just to the left and the right of The Taggart House. Norman Rockwell spent most of his career painting in Stockbridge, and this is the location of his museum.

Charnel Benner/Ski Resorts Hunt Ter HISTORY: The Hartford County town of Southington is located in central Connecticut on land incorporated from Farmington in 1779. By 1790, industry supplemented the community’s agricultural base with potash works, a button factory, saw mills, and a brass foundry. In the mid-1800s, the town’s Micah Rugg and Martin Barnes factory produced the first machine-made nuts and bolts and inspired other manufacturers to follow suit. Still later, local enterprises produced plumbing supplies, automobile parts, filters, and other goods. Southington today is an industrial, commercial, and residential community, but its agricultural roots remain. The town’s annual Apple Harvest Festival, for example, is enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. At the center of the Plantsville Historic District are several industrial complexes that were home to Southington's prosperous hardware industry which flourished in the mid and late nineteenth century. These manufacturing buildings are located along the Quinnipiac River and Penn Central Railroad (formerly the New Haven and Northhampton Railroad) that bisects the district and along the Eight Mile River that runs through the western edge of the district. A strip of commercial architecture runs east-west along Main and West Main Streets, connecting the Plantsville Historic District's two main residential concentrations. These areas are centered around the Plantsville Congregational Church on Church Street and the former Plantsville Baptist Church (now Faith Living Church) on Grove Street. A substantial strip of residential architecture also extends northward along Summer Street (formerly Water Street) near the course of the Quinnipiac River. The land in the Quinnipiac River flood plain is level; the terrain rises to the hills on Prospect Street and Summer Street on the north side of the district, and to Hillside Avenue and Grove Street on the south side. The Plantsville Historic District contains 248 buildings, of which 221 contribute to its architectural and historical significance. Of the 248 buildings, 166 are primary buildings — residences, stores, churches, and manufacturing facilities — and 82 are secondary buildings consisting primarily of barns and garages. Most of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings date from 1820 to 1935. ARCHITECTURE: Eleven different formal architectural styles can be identified in 99 of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings. The most prevalent style is Italianate, with 26 buildings, followed by Queen Anne (21), Colonial Revival (19), Victorian Gothic (8), Greek Revival (6), Bungalow/Craftsman (6), Shingle Style (5), Second Empire (3), Gothic Revival (2), Stick Style (2), and Late Gothic Revival (1). Primary buildings classified as "vernacular" or "no style" number 78, while 81 secondary buildings are identified. The majority of buildings in the Plantsville Historic District are single-family dwellings and their associated barns, garages, and other outbuildings. A number of single-family houses have been converted to multi-family dwellings, though with little or no change to the character of the buildings. Many of the houses such as those of Summer, West, Prospect and Elm Streets are located on deep lots with large setbacks. Streets such as Church, Grove, and South Main have smaller (but not crowded) lots. The houses in Plantsville typically display wood clapboard or shingle sheathing; flushboard and board-and-batten siding are also found. Wooden decorative elements such as bargeboards, brackets, and trusses are plentiful in the late nineteenth-century houses. A few of the barns and garages are embellished with architectural detail such as brackets, bargeboards, and cupolas, but most outbuildings are unadorned. Most of the houses are two stories in height, although one-story bungalows and cottages are scattered throughout the district. An occasional three-level tower rises above the average two-story height. The majority of houses are in good to excellent repair, with almost 100% occupancy throughout the district. Some have been altered with aluminum siding, enclosed porches, or new windows; however, most maintain a high degree of architectural integrity. The houses have well-tended lawns with mature deciduous and fir trees and abundant shrubbery. The industrial architecture is located in the Quinnipiac River and Eight Mile River flood plains. Most of these nineteenth and early twentieth century manufacturing complexes are currently occupied for industrial purposes or storage. The buildings range in height from one to four stories, and are constructed primarily of brick. Detailing such as brick corbelling, wooden brackets, and scrollwork embellished these otherwise utilitarian, vernacular industrial buildings. Many have newer aluminum or metal shed additions. Large paved areas surround most of the structures to facilitate parking, loading, and shipping functions. Plantsville's early commercial buildings consist of storefronts added to older dwellings. Many of the buildings have a gable-front orientation and are tightly spaced along the two main streets. Most commercial buildings are two or three stories, with commercial use of the first floor and residential, office, or meeting space occupying the upper levels. Brick and wood are the most common building materials. Most commercial buildings have little or no setback from the sidewalk, and little landscaping is evident. One public open space is found in the Plantsville Historic District — a small park located on Hillside Avenue between Grove and Maple Streets. Plantsville's six Greek Revival buildings illustrate a variety of forms common to the style. The Timothy Higgins House (1828) at 103 West Street uses the common form of a two-story, three-bay rectangular block with gable-front orientation, while the Samuel Clark House (c.1840) at 67 West Street employs a square main block with a pyramidal roof. The C.B. Cowles Store (1848) on West Main Street, with its gable-front orientation is an example of Greek Revival-style commercial architecture. A fully developed example of the Gothic Revival style is illustrated by the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866) on Church Street, designed by Josiah Cleveland Cady. The Plantsville Historic District's 26 Italianate buildings reflect the major variations of the style. The William Clark House (c.1860) at 40 Cowles Avenue is an example of a three-bay, square block house with a shallow hipped roof and centered one-story belvedere cupola. The Charles B. Cowles House (1873) at 35 Church Street employs a T-plan with a steeply pitched gable roof. The decorative bargeboards with acorn motif pendants reflects the influence of the Gothic Revival style. An example of Italianate style applied to commercial architecture is the John Collins Store at 756-762 Main Street (1840/1870). The Twichell/Ward House (1863) at 78 West Street provides an example of the Second Empire style. The house is dominated by its unusually broad and flared mansard roof and corner tower. The presence of dormers with steep gable roofs, carved bargeboards and pierced gable screens indicates the influence of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District contains eight Victorian buildings with strong Gothic influence. The seven residential examples possess elaborate decorative elements such as gable trusses and pierced screens contrasting simple plans and sheathings. A typical example is the James Brewer House (1866) at 302 Summer Street. An example of a simple Victorian Gothic cottage is found at 33 Church Street (c.1865). The 21 Queen Anne style buildings located in the Plantsville Historic District well illustrate the style's characteristic features — complexity of plan, asymmetry, combinations of exterior sheathings, and ornamentation. The William Cummings House (c.1890) at 28 Elm Street, with its highly asymmetrical plan and slender, two-story oriel with steeply flared roof and elaborate finial is the Plantsville Historic District's most complete example. A simpler, more vernacular expression of the style can be found at 28 Grove Street (c.1890). A large stock of Colonial Revival buildings, most of which are simple, vernacular expressions of the style are present in the Plantsville Historic District. An example of the Dutch Colonial style which employs the gambrel roof is found at 100 Church Street (c.1920). The most unusual Colonial Revival building is an early gas station at 740 Main Street (c.1910). The six Bungalow/Craftsman style houses located in the Plantsville Historic District illustrate the style's advocacy of simplicity in design, use of natural materials and a return to hand craftsmanship. The bungalow at 38 Elm Street (c.1920), with its simple plan, broad pitched roof, exposed rafters and cobblestone chimney is an example. Fifty-six primary buildings are not classified by a specific style. The residential architecture so identified is mostly two-story, wood-framed houses with minimal architectural detail. Industrial complexes range from the sprawling unembellished brick buildings of the Blakeslee Forging Company (1912) to the more decorative and refined H.D. Smith and Co. office (1882) on West Street. Significance The Plantsville Historic District is architecturally significant because of the outstanding quality, diversity, and high degree of preservation of its 258 buildings. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture documents the growth and development of a nineteenth-century industrial community. It contains excellent examples of eleven different architectural styles (plus vernacular examples) popular in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Plantsville Historic District contains many highly intact streetscapes. Included in the district is the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866), a Gothic Revival church designed by nationally prominent architect Josiah Cleveland Cady. It ranks as one of Connecticut's best examples of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District also includes remaining manufacturing buildings and complexes which gave Plantsville its industrial base. Architectural Significance The Plantsville Historic District is one of the finest concentrations of nineteenth century architecture in Southington. Contained in the Plantsville Historic District are all the architectural components of a nineteenth century industrial community — the manufacturing complexes, the houses of the industrialists and workers, and Plantsville's stores, churches and social halls. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture rivals or surpasses the concentrations of buildings at Southington Center which developed in a similar manner during the nineteenth century. In terms of the quality and quantity of architecture from that period, it surpasses Southington's other sub-centers of Marion and Milldale. The Plantsville Historic District's state of preservation is excellent, with the majority of the houses in very good condition and most of the original settlement pattern maintained. The outstanding architectural quality of the Plantsville Historic District arises in part from the breadth and variety of styles represented. Included in the Plantsville Historic District are many fine Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, Stick Style, Shingle Style, Colonial Revival, Late Gothic Revival and Bungalow/Craftsman style buildings as well as many examples of vernacular architecture.

  • Das Anwesen war wunderschön und charmant. Es war genau wie beschrieben und abgebildet in der Auflistung, und Nelson war ein fantastischer, reaktionsschneller Gastgeber. Das Anwesen ist eine charmante Mischung aus antikem Charme und modernem Komfort. Es war großartig, zwei separate Häuser für unsere große Gruppe zu haben. Die Küche des Haupthauses war perfekt und das Anwesen selbst war der Inbegriff eines Gehöfts in NY. Unsere Gruppe kommt gerne wieder, um dies zu einer jährlichen Tradition zu machen!

  • Diese Eigenschaft ist spektakulär! Wir haben es als Location für ein Fotoshooting genutzt. Der Besitzer ist leicht zu verständigen und hat sich schnell bei uns gemeldet. Wir hatten eine spezielle Anfrage und er freute sich, uns ohne Probleme unterzubringen. Die Anlagen sind wunderschön, gepflegt und privat. Das Innere des Hauses ist wunderschön und die Renovierungen wurden mit der historischen Ära gehalten. Es wäre schön, die Geschichte des Hauses im Detail zu kennen. Wir hoffen, dass wir zu einem zweiten Shooting an diesen schönen Ort zurückkehren können. Wir hatten die Gelegenheit, einen Höhepunkt im Gästehaus zu nehmen und es war auch sehr schön. Wir können dieses Hotel sehr empfehlen und werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!

    Angelica2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Tolles Zuhause - noch besser als beworben. Der Besitzer ging auf Fragen ein, ging auf die Bedürfnisse ein und schlug fantastisches Catering und Restaurants vor. Sehr zu empfehlen. Installierter Pizzaofen & Feuerstelle vor Anreise. Erstklassig den ganzen Weg.

  • Nelsons Zuhause ist wunderschön und das Anwesen ist unglaublich. Es gab viel Platz für unsere Besatzung von 14.

  • Dieses historische Haus ist fabelhaft! Jedes Jahr plane ich einen Familienurlaub für meine Kinder und Enkelkinder und die Abstimmung findet statt. Dieses Haus ist jedermanns Favorit - aus gutem Grund. Das Haus wurde im 18. Jahrhundert erbaut, aber man würde es nie erfahren. Alles wurde aktualisiert - Küchen, Badezimmer, Möbel, Klimaanlage - und doch gibt es immer noch den Charme der alten Welt. Es gibt alte Dielen und andere historische Details, die Sie sich vorstellen lassen, wie das Leben damals gewesen sein muss. Besonders gut hat uns die Veranda gefallen, auf der sich die Familie zu verschiedenen Aktivitäten versammelte, darunter zu einem Puzzle-Marathon. Die gut ausgestattete Küche ist riesig und während einige gekocht haben, haben sich die Nichtkocher versammelt - von Erwachsenen bis zu zwei Jahren. Die Betten waren sehr bequem, genauso wie alle Sofas im Erdgeschoss in zwei sehr geräumigen, hintereinander angeordneten Wohnzimmern. Einer meiner Lieblingsplätze im Haus wurde erst am 2. Tag entdeckt. Unter der Treppe, die in den 2. Stock führt, befindet sich eine Treppe zu einem großen Unterhaltungsraum im Keller mit einem Streik. Es ist sehr hell, riesig mit schönen Sofas, einem Fernseher und einer Billard- / Tischtennisplatte, die viele unserer Gruppe genossen haben. Wir waren eine sehr große Gruppe von 14 Personen, daher benutzte der Überlauf das Zwei-Schlafzimmer-Cottage mit zwei Bädern, das sehr nahe am Haupthaus liegt (mit eigener Küche!). Die Unterkünfte dort waren genauso schön wie im Haupthaus. Nelson, der Besitzer, war unglaublich nett. Die Mikrowelle war zwar neu, aber fehlerhaft, und sobald ich ihn kontaktierte, war Nelson mit einem Ersatz vorbei. Als wir Nelson wegen eines anderen Problems kontaktierten, antwortete er erneut schnell. Er hat nicht nur das Problem behoben, sondern uns auch leckere Donuts vom Bauernmarkt gebracht. Er ist so nett und zuvorkommend. Wir haben viel Zeit auf dem Tennisplatz verbracht, wobei alle Altersgruppen spielten (2-75). Es ist eine kleine Wanderung zum Platz, aber nach dem ersten Mal wurde es einfach (nicht für die meisten 90-Jährigen). Der Pool ist sehr schön und auch einen Hügel hinauf - aber überhaupt nicht schwer zu laufen. Wenn Sie also nur am Pool abhängen möchten, haben Sie einfachen Zugang zum Haus und zur Hütte. Und wundern Sie sich nicht, wenn Sie einen Gast sehen. Wir waren im Hinterhof und das Pferd von nebenan entschied sich zu besuchen. Wir mussten ihn zurück nach Hause führen, aber es war nur ein weiterer Höhepunkt. Die Umgebung ist auch sehr schön. Wir gingen eines Tages im Naturschutzgebiet spazieren und gingen zu einem anderen Bauernhof. Katonah ist eine sehr süße Stadt mit vielen interessanten Boutiquen. Ich kann nicht genug über dieses Haus und die Gegend schwärmen. Wir hoffen, bald wiederzukommen! Vielen Dank, Nelson. Carolyn

  • Wir hatten eine super Zeit! Alles war so klar und sauber. Tolles Haus und Grundstück.

  • Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und bleiben hier! Der Besitzer ist sehr reaktionsschnell und professionell. Der Raum war großartig für unser Treffen. Der Pool ist toll und sonnig. Die Küche macht Spaß zu kochen und sich zu versammeln. Der Außenbereich ist gemütlich und einladend.

    Sarah2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Rundum 5 Sterne! Nelson war sehr zuvorkommend und beantwortete schnell die vielen Fragen, die wir hatten. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in diesem wunderschönen Anwesen. So viele Morgen, damit unsere Fellbabys frei laufen können. Ich würde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen und dieses Hotel auf jeden Fall für eine große Gruppe mit Hunden empfehlen. Vielen Dank für alles, Herr Salazar!

Raj antwortete schnell auf alle Fragen und Wünsche vor und während unseres Aufenthalts, und er und seine Frau waren äußerst gnädig in Bezug auf die Art und Weise, wie ich ungewollt ein problematischer Gast war. Die Lage war praktisch für Vassar und viele Restaurants (15 Minuten entfernt), das Einchecken ist sehr einfach und das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis ist so gut wie in der Gegend von Poughkeepsie.

  • Hätte nicht besser sein können, um einen besonderen Anlass zu feiern. Wir waren 9 Paare - jedes hatte einen privaten Raum und es gab so viele großartige Möglichkeiten, um abzuhängen, sich zu entspannen und Fall in the Berkshires zu genießen. Ken half mir, mich mit einem unglaublichen Privatkoch zu verbinden, Ehre, die Menüs für den Tag zusammengestellt haben, die mit einer großen Auswahl und leckerem Essen ins Schwarze treffen. Wir ließen einen Yogalehrer eine Klasse im Übungsraum leiten. Whirlpool, Feuerstelle ... wir haben alles geliebt. Vielen Dank, Ken!

  • Meine Verlobte und ich wollten in den Berkshires heiraten, aber wir wollten nicht die meisten traditionellen Dinge einer regulären Hochzeit. Eigentlich wollten wir das Wochenende nur mit möglichst vielen unserer Freunde verbringen und die Zeremonie irgendwie mittendrin ausrichten. Wir haben eine Reihe von verschiedenen Orten in Betracht gezogen, aber als wir 250 Long Pond besuchten und Honour trafen (den Hausmeister, den großartigen Koch und die rundum unglaubliche Person), wussten wir sofort, dass wir den richtigen Ort gefunden hatten. Der Ort sieht noch besser aus als auf den Bildern: Es ist wunderschön und die Aussicht auf die Berkshires ist atemberaubend. Obwohl ich mir sicher bin, dass viele Leute die Hochzeitsdekoration voll auskosten und sie noch schöner machen werden, fanden wir es toll, dass wir nichts davon tun mussten: Wir haben nur ein paar Blumen auf die Tische gelegt und angerufen es ist ein Tag. Es sah unglaublich aus. Das Haus fühlt sich monumental groß an, wenn Sie dort sind, aber es schafft es irgendwie und fühlt sich gleichzeitig heimelig und intim. Wir hatten 26 Leute bei uns (3 im Gästehaus, eine separate Auflistung auf Airbnb) und 84 für die Zeremonie und das Abendessen selbst, aber das Haus könnte bequem für viel mehr Leute passen. Das Gelände selbst ist ebenfalls riesig und atemberaubend: Wir haben uns entschlossen, die Zeremonie an einer großen Eiche abzuhalten, die ein Stück vom Haus am Ende des Rasens entfernt steht. Es war ein perfekter kleiner Ort! Vertrauen Sie mir: Es ist ein unglaublicher Ort. Alle unsere Gäste waren fassungslos und diejenigen, die bei uns übernachteten, waren unglaublich dankbar, dass wir ihren Aufenthalt abdecken konnten, indem wir sie an einem Ort aufstellten, der weitaus schöner war als jedes 5-Sterne-Hotel. Wir ließen Leute aus der ganzen Welt einfliegen, daher war es ein großer Vorteil, einige der Kosten unserer Gäste auszugleichen. Abschließend möchte ich nur betonen, wie unglaublich der Hausverwalter (Honour) ist, indem er einige unaufgeforderte Ratschläge gibt: Wenn Sie sich entschieden haben, diesen Ort zu vermieten, und Sie müssen etwas zu essen haben, machen Sie nicht den Fehler, Honour als NICHT anzuheuern ein Koch. Ich bin mir sicher, dass sie genauso wie die Hausverwalterin unglaublich hilfreich gewesen wäre, selbst wenn wir uns entschieden hätten, jemand anderen zum Essen zu benutzen. Aber wir sind so froh, dass wir es nicht getan haben. Honour bereitete das Abendessen für den Vorabend vor und servierte es allen Gästen des Hauses. An zwei Vormittagen gab es Kaffee und Frühstück sowie ein umfangreiches Abendessen für alle bei der Zeremonie. Alles war absolut lecker und wunderschön angelegt. Tatsächlich sagten uns einige unserer Gäste, es sei das beste Essen, das sie jemals auf einer Hochzeit hatten. Und sie schaffte das alles, indem sie alle Fragen beantwortete, unsere Angst beruhigte, sich mit logistischen Hürden befasste und uns dabei half, Ideen zu entwickeln, wie wir den Raum am besten nutzen können. Außerdem fügte sie immer wieder diese ganz besonderen persönlichen Details hinzu. Hier ist ein Beispiel von vielen: Ich komme ursprünglich aus Portugal und viele meiner Verwandten sind von dort angereist. Dies wissend, schickte uns Honour ein paar Tage vor der Zeremonie aus heiterem Himmel eine SMS, um uns mitzuteilen, dass sie nach Ludlow, Massachusetts, gefahren war, um uns 100 Sardinen (gegrillte Sardinen sind ein portugiesisches Grundnahrungsmittel) und 100 Pasteis de Nata ( ein ikonisches kleines portugiesisches Gebäck), das an unserem Hochzeitstag serviert wird. Sie bekommen das Bild: Ehre ist unglaublich.

  • Einfach tolles Haus. Wir hatten vier Familien mit 10 jungen (zwei bis sieben Jahre alten) Kindern und das Haus war perfekt, um uns alle bequem zu beherbergen, mit mehreren Gemeinschaftsbereichen, in denen verschiedene Gruppen in verschiedene Aktivitäten eintauchen konnten. Sehr empfehlenswert.

  • Dies ist ein magisches Zuhause, wirklich eine Oase, auf 120 Hektar schönen Waldgebieten. Von dem Moment an, als wir das Haus für ein großes Familientreffen gebucht hatten, gaben Ken und Maytal alles, um sicherzustellen, dass unser Aufenthalt perfekt sein würde. Der Hausverwalter war vor Ort und kümmerte sich um eine Vielzahl von Details in letzter Minute. Wir haben 16 mit Leichtigkeit geschlafen und hätten mehr unterbringen können. Vom Aufwachen bis zum Sonnenaufgang in der Fensterwand bis zum Sitzen am Kamin in der Küche nach dem Abendessen, verbrachten wir den ganzen Tag in diesem spektakulären Haus. Ich plane schon unsere Rückkehr!

  • Wenn Sie in einem der spektakulärsten Häuser und der Natur wohnen möchten, ist dies der richtige Ort für Sie. Das Haus selbst ist in einem schönen modernen und sehr hochwertigen Design gestaltet und bietet viel Platz zum Mischen. Das Anwesen ist riesig und wird Sie nie verlassen wollen. Wir veranstalteten eine Mini-Hochzeit im 250 Long Pond und hätten uns keinen besonderen Ort gewünscht. Darüber hinaus waren sowohl der Gastgeber als auch der Hausmeister äußerst kommunikativ und angenehm in der Interaktion. Bitte beachten Sie, dass wir neben der airbnb-Liste auch das Scheune + Gästehaus gemietet haben. Wir empfehlen Ihnen dies, wenn Sie eine größere Gruppe haben oder dort eine Veranstaltung veranstalten.

Charnel Benner/Ski Resorts Hunt Ter HISTORY: The Hartford County town of Southington is located in central Connecticut on land incorporated from Farmington in 1779. By 1790, industry supplemented the community’s agricultural base with potash works, a button factory, saw mills, and a brass foundry. In the mid-1800s, the town’s Micah Rugg and Martin Barnes factory produced the first machine-made nuts and bolts and inspired other manufacturers to follow suit. Still later, local enterprises produced plumbing supplies, automobile parts, filters, and other goods. Southington today is an industrial, commercial, and residential community, but its agricultural roots remain. The town’s annual Apple Harvest Festival, for example, is enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. At the center of the Plantsville Historic District are several industrial complexes that were home to Southington's prosperous hardware industry which flourished in the mid and late nineteenth century. These manufacturing buildings are located along the Quinnipiac River and Penn Central Railroad (formerly the New Haven and Northhampton Railroad) that bisects the district and along the Eight Mile River that runs through the western edge of the district. A strip of commercial architecture runs east-west along Main and West Main Streets, connecting the Plantsville Historic District's two main residential concentrations. These areas are centered around the Plantsville Congregational Church on Church Street and the former Plantsville Baptist Church (now Faith Living Church) on Grove Street. A substantial strip of residential architecture also extends northward along Summer Street (formerly Water Street) near the course of the Quinnipiac River. The land in the Quinnipiac River flood plain is level; the terrain rises to the hills on Prospect Street and Summer Street on the north side of the district, and to Hillside Avenue and Grove Street on the south side. The Plantsville Historic District contains 248 buildings, of which 221 contribute to its architectural and historical significance. Of the 248 buildings, 166 are primary buildings — residences, stores, churches, and manufacturing facilities — and 82 are secondary buildings consisting primarily of barns and garages. Most of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings date from 1820 to 1935. ARCHITECTURE: Eleven different formal architectural styles can be identified in 99 of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings. The most prevalent style is Italianate, with 26 buildings, followed by Queen Anne (21), Colonial Revival (19), Victorian Gothic (8), Greek Revival (6), Bungalow/Craftsman (6), Shingle Style (5), Second Empire (3), Gothic Revival (2), Stick Style (2), and Late Gothic Revival (1). Primary buildings classified as "vernacular" or "no style" number 78, while 81 secondary buildings are identified. The majority of buildings in the Plantsville Historic District are single-family dwellings and their associated barns, garages, and other outbuildings. A number of single-family houses have been converted to multi-family dwellings, though with little or no change to the character of the buildings. Many of the houses such as those of Summer, West, Prospect and Elm Streets are located on deep lots with large setbacks. Streets such as Church, Grove, and South Main have smaller (but not crowded) lots. The houses in Plantsville typically display wood clapboard or shingle sheathing; flushboard and board-and-batten siding are also found. Wooden decorative elements such as bargeboards, brackets, and trusses are plentiful in the late nineteenth-century houses. A few of the barns and garages are embellished with architectural detail such as brackets, bargeboards, and cupolas, but most outbuildings are unadorned. Most of the houses are two stories in height, although one-story bungalows and cottages are scattered throughout the district. An occasional three-level tower rises above the average two-story height. The majority of houses are in good to excellent repair, with almost 100% occupancy throughout the district. Some have been altered with aluminum siding, enclosed porches, or new windows; however, most maintain a high degree of architectural integrity. The houses have well-tended lawns with mature deciduous and fir trees and abundant shrubbery. The industrial architecture is located in the Quinnipiac River and Eight Mile River flood plains. Most of these nineteenth and early twentieth century manufacturing complexes are currently occupied for industrial purposes or storage. The buildings range in height from one to four stories, and are constructed primarily of brick. Detailing such as brick corbelling, wooden brackets, and scrollwork embellished these otherwise utilitarian, vernacular industrial buildings. Many have newer aluminum or metal shed additions. Large paved areas surround most of the structures to facilitate parking, loading, and shipping functions. Plantsville's early commercial buildings consist of storefronts added to older dwellings. Many of the buildings have a gable-front orientation and are tightly spaced along the two main streets. Most commercial buildings are two or three stories, with commercial use of the first floor and residential, office, or meeting space occupying the upper levels. Brick and wood are the most common building materials. Most commercial buildings have little or no setback from the sidewalk, and little landscaping is evident. One public open space is found in the Plantsville Historic District — a small park located on Hillside Avenue between Grove and Maple Streets. Plantsville's six Greek Revival buildings illustrate a variety of forms common to the style. The Timothy Higgins House (1828) at 103 West Street uses the common form of a two-story, three-bay rectangular block with gable-front orientation, while the Samuel Clark House (c.1840) at 67 West Street employs a square main block with a pyramidal roof. The C.B. Cowles Store (1848) on West Main Street, with its gable-front orientation is an example of Greek Revival-style commercial architecture. A fully developed example of the Gothic Revival style is illustrated by the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866) on Church Street, designed by Josiah Cleveland Cady. The Plantsville Historic District's 26 Italianate buildings reflect the major variations of the style. The William Clark House (c.1860) at 40 Cowles Avenue is an example of a three-bay, square block house with a shallow hipped roof and centered one-story belvedere cupola. The Charles B. Cowles House (1873) at 35 Church Street employs a T-plan with a steeply pitched gable roof. The decorative bargeboards with acorn motif pendants reflects the influence of the Gothic Revival style. An example of Italianate style applied to commercial architecture is the John Collins Store at 756-762 Main Street (1840/1870). The Twichell/Ward House (1863) at 78 West Street provides an example of the Second Empire style. The house is dominated by its unusually broad and flared mansard roof and corner tower. The presence of dormers with steep gable roofs, carved bargeboards and pierced gable screens indicates the influence of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District contains eight Victorian buildings with strong Gothic influence. The seven residential examples possess elaborate decorative elements such as gable trusses and pierced screens contrasting simple plans and sheathings. A typical example is the James Brewer House (1866) at 302 Summer Street. An example of a simple Victorian Gothic cottage is found at 33 Church Street (c.1865). The 21 Queen Anne style buildings located in the Plantsville Historic District well illustrate the style's characteristic features — complexity of plan, asymmetry, combinations of exterior sheathings, and ornamentation. The William Cummings House (c.1890) at 28 Elm Street, with its highly asymmetrical plan and slender, two-story oriel with steeply flared roof and elaborate finial is the Plantsville Historic District's most complete example. A simpler, more vernacular expression of the style can be found at 28 Grove Street (c.1890). A large stock of Colonial Revival buildings, most of which are simple, vernacular expressions of the style are present in the Plantsville Historic District. An example of the Dutch Colonial style which employs the gambrel roof is found at 100 Church Street (c.1920). The most unusual Colonial Revival building is an early gas station at 740 Main Street (c.1910). The six Bungalow/Craftsman style houses located in the Plantsville Historic District illustrate the style's advocacy of simplicity in design, use of natural materials and a return to hand craftsmanship. The bungalow at 38 Elm Street (c.1920), with its simple plan, broad pitched roof, exposed rafters and cobblestone chimney is an example. Fifty-six primary buildings are not classified by a specific style. The residential architecture so identified is mostly two-story, wood-framed houses with minimal architectural detail. Industrial complexes range from the sprawling unembellished brick buildings of the Blakeslee Forging Company (1912) to the more decorative and refined H.D. Smith and Co. office (1882) on West Street. Significance The Plantsville Historic District is architecturally significant because of the outstanding quality, diversity, and high degree of preservation of its 258 buildings. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture documents the growth and development of a nineteenth-century industrial community. It contains excellent examples of eleven different architectural styles (plus vernacular examples) popular in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Plantsville Historic District contains many highly intact streetscapes. Included in the district is the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866), a Gothic Revival church designed by nationally prominent architect Josiah Cleveland Cady. It ranks as one of Connecticut's best examples of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District also includes remaining manufacturing buildings and complexes which gave Plantsville its industrial base. Architectural Significance The Plantsville Historic District is one of the finest concentrations of nineteenth century architecture in Southington. Contained in the Plantsville Historic District are all the architectural components of a nineteenth century industrial community — the manufacturing complexes, the houses of the industrialists and workers, and Plantsville's stores, churches and social halls. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture rivals or surpasses the concentrations of buildings at Southington Center which developed in a similar manner during the nineteenth century. In terms of the quality and quantity of architecture from that period, it surpasses Southington's other sub-centers of Marion and Milldale. The Plantsville Historic District's state of preservation is excellent, with the majority of the houses in very good condition and most of the original settlement pattern maintained. The outstanding architectural quality of the Plantsville Historic District arises in part from the breadth and variety of styles represented. Included in the Plantsville Historic District are many fine Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, Stick Style, Shingle Style, Colonial Revival, Late Gothic Revival and Bungalow/Craftsman style buildings as well as many examples of vernacular architecture.

Charnel Benner/Ski Resorts Hunt Ter HISTORY: The Hartford County town of Southington is located in central Connecticut on land incorporated from Farmington in 1779. By 1790, industry supplemented the community’s agricultural base with potash works, a button factory, saw mills, and a brass foundry. In the mid-1800s, the town’s Micah Rugg and Martin Barnes factory produced the first machine-made nuts and bolts and inspired other manufacturers to follow suit. Still later, local enterprises produced plumbing supplies, automobile parts, filters, and other goods. Southington today is an industrial, commercial, and residential community, but its agricultural roots remain. The town’s annual Apple Harvest Festival, for example, is enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. At the center of the Plantsville Historic District are several industrial complexes that were home to Southington's prosperous hardware industry which flourished in the mid and late nineteenth century. These manufacturing buildings are located along the Quinnipiac River and Penn Central Railroad (formerly the New Haven and Northhampton Railroad) that bisects the district and along the Eight Mile River that runs through the western edge of the district. A strip of commercial architecture runs east-west along Main and West Main Streets, connecting the Plantsville Historic District's two main residential concentrations. These areas are centered around the Plantsville Congregational Church on Church Street and the former Plantsville Baptist Church (now Faith Living Church) on Grove Street. A substantial strip of residential architecture also extends northward along Summer Street (formerly Water Street) near the course of the Quinnipiac River. The land in the Quinnipiac River flood plain is level; the terrain rises to the hills on Prospect Street and Summer Street on the north side of the district, and to Hillside Avenue and Grove Street on the south side. The Plantsville Historic District contains 248 buildings, of which 221 contribute to its architectural and historical significance. Of the 248 buildings, 166 are primary buildings — residences, stores, churches, and manufacturing facilities — and 82 are secondary buildings consisting primarily of barns and garages. Most of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings date from 1820 to 1935. ARCHITECTURE: Eleven different formal architectural styles can be identified in 99 of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings. The most prevalent style is Italianate, with 26 buildings, followed by Queen Anne (21), Colonial Revival (19), Victorian Gothic (8), Greek Revival (6), Bungalow/Craftsman (6), Shingle Style (5), Second Empire (3), Gothic Revival (2), Stick Style (2), and Late Gothic Revival (1). Primary buildings classified as "vernacular" or "no style" number 78, while 81 secondary buildings are identified. The majority of buildings in the Plantsville Historic District are single-family dwellings and their associated barns, garages, and other outbuildings. A number of single-family houses have been converted to multi-family dwellings, though with little or no change to the character of the buildings. Many of the houses such as those of Summer, West, Prospect and Elm Streets are located on deep lots with large setbacks. Streets such as Church, Grove, and South Main have smaller (but not crowded) lots. The houses in Plantsville typically display wood clapboard or shingle sheathing; flushboard and board-and-batten siding are also found. Wooden decorative elements such as bargeboards, brackets, and trusses are plentiful in the late nineteenth-century houses. A few of the barns and garages are embellished with architectural detail such as brackets, bargeboards, and cupolas, but most outbuildings are unadorned. Most of the houses are two stories in height, although one-story bungalows and cottages are scattered throughout the district. An occasional three-level tower rises above the average two-story height. The majority of houses are in good to excellent repair, with almost 100% occupancy throughout the district. Some have been altered with aluminum siding, enclosed porches, or new windows; however, most maintain a high degree of architectural integrity. The houses have well-tended lawns with mature deciduous and fir trees and abundant shrubbery. The industrial architecture is located in the Quinnipiac River and Eight Mile River flood plains. Most of these nineteenth and early twentieth century manufacturing complexes are currently occupied for industrial purposes or storage. The buildings range in height from one to four stories, and are constructed primarily of brick. Detailing such as brick corbelling, wooden brackets, and scrollwork embellished these otherwise utilitarian, vernacular industrial buildings. Many have newer aluminum or metal shed additions. Large paved areas surround most of the structures to facilitate parking, loading, and shipping functions. Plantsville's early commercial buildings consist of storefronts added to older dwellings. Many of the buildings have a gable-front orientation and are tightly spaced along the two main streets. Most commercial buildings are two or three stories, with commercial use of the first floor and residential, office, or meeting space occupying the upper levels. Brick and wood are the most common building materials. Most commercial buildings have little or no setback from the sidewalk, and little landscaping is evident. One public open space is found in the Plantsville Historic District — a small park located on Hillside Avenue between Grove and Maple Streets. Plantsville's six Greek Revival buildings illustrate a variety of forms common to the style. The Timothy Higgins House (1828) at 103 West Street uses the common form of a two-story, three-bay rectangular block with gable-front orientation, while the Samuel Clark House (c.1840) at 67 West Street employs a square main block with a pyramidal roof. The C.B. Cowles Store (1848) on West Main Street, with its gable-front orientation is an example of Greek Revival-style commercial architecture. A fully developed example of the Gothic Revival style is illustrated by the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866) on Church Street, designed by Josiah Cleveland Cady. The Plantsville Historic District's 26 Italianate buildings reflect the major variations of the style. The William Clark House (c.1860) at 40 Cowles Avenue is an example of a three-bay, square block house with a shallow hipped roof and centered one-story belvedere cupola. The Charles B. Cowles House (1873) at 35 Church Street employs a T-plan with a steeply pitched gable roof. The decorative bargeboards with acorn motif pendants reflects the influence of the Gothic Revival style. An example of Italianate style applied to commercial architecture is the John Collins Store at 756-762 Main Street (1840/1870). The Twichell/Ward House (1863) at 78 West Street provides an example of the Second Empire style. The house is dominated by its unusually broad and flared mansard roof and corner tower. The presence of dormers with steep gable roofs, carved bargeboards and pierced gable screens indicates the influence of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District contains eight Victorian buildings with strong Gothic influence. The seven residential examples possess elaborate decorative elements such as gable trusses and pierced screens contrasting simple plans and sheathings. A typical example is the James Brewer House (1866) at 302 Summer Street. An example of a simple Victorian Gothic cottage is found at 33 Church Street (c.1865). The 21 Queen Anne style buildings located in the Plantsville Historic District well illustrate the style's characteristic features — complexity of plan, asymmetry, combinations of exterior sheathings, and ornamentation. The William Cummings House (c.1890) at 28 Elm Street, with its highly asymmetrical plan and slender, two-story oriel with steeply flared roof and elaborate finial is the Plantsville Historic District's most complete example. A simpler, more vernacular expression of the style can be found at 28 Grove Street (c.1890). A large stock of Colonial Revival buildings, most of which are simple, vernacular expressions of the style are present in the Plantsville Historic District. An example of the Dutch Colonial style which employs the gambrel roof is found at 100 Church Street (c.1920). The most unusual Colonial Revival building is an early gas station at 740 Main Street (c.1910). The six Bungalow/Craftsman style houses located in the Plantsville Historic District illustrate the style's advocacy of simplicity in design, use of natural materials and a return to hand craftsmanship. The bungalow at 38 Elm Street (c.1920), with its simple plan, broad pitched roof, exposed rafters and cobblestone chimney is an example. Fifty-six primary buildings are not classified by a specific style. The residential architecture so identified is mostly two-story, wood-framed houses with minimal architectural detail. Industrial complexes range from the sprawling unembellished brick buildings of the Blakeslee Forging Company (1912) to the more decorative and refined H.D. Smith and Co. office (1882) on West Street. Significance The Plantsville Historic District is architecturally significant because of the outstanding quality, diversity, and high degree of preservation of its 258 buildings. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture documents the growth and development of a nineteenth-century industrial community. It contains excellent examples of eleven different architectural styles (plus vernacular examples) popular in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Plantsville Historic District contains many highly intact streetscapes. Included in the district is the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866), a Gothic Revival church designed by nationally prominent architect Josiah Cleveland Cady. It ranks as one of Connecticut's best examples of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District also includes remaining manufacturing buildings and complexes which gave Plantsville its industrial base. Architectural Significance The Plantsville Historic District is one of the finest concentrations of nineteenth century architecture in Southington. Contained in the Plantsville Historic District are all the architectural components of a nineteenth century industrial community — the manufacturing complexes, the houses of the industrialists and workers, and Plantsville's stores, churches and social halls. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture rivals or surpasses the concentrations of buildings at Southington Center which developed in a similar manner during the nineteenth century. In terms of the quality and quantity of architecture from that period, it surpasses Southington's other sub-centers of Marion and Milldale. The Plantsville Historic District's state of preservation is excellent, with the majority of the houses in very good condition and most of the original settlement pattern maintained. The outstanding architectural quality of the Plantsville Historic District arises in part from the breadth and variety of styles represented. Included in the Plantsville Historic District are many fine Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, Stick Style, Shingle Style, Colonial Revival, Late Gothic Revival and Bungalow/Craftsman style buildings as well as many examples of vernacular architecture.

Charnel Benner/Ski Resorts Hunt Ter HISTORY: The Hartford County town of Southington is located in central Connecticut on land incorporated from Farmington in 1779. By 1790, industry supplemented the community’s agricultural base with potash works, a button factory, saw mills, and a brass foundry. In the mid-1800s, the town’s Micah Rugg and Martin Barnes factory produced the first machine-made nuts and bolts and inspired other manufacturers to follow suit. Still later, local enterprises produced plumbing supplies, automobile parts, filters, and other goods. Southington today is an industrial, commercial, and residential community, but its agricultural roots remain. The town’s annual Apple Harvest Festival, for example, is enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. At the center of the Plantsville Historic District are several industrial complexes that were home to Southington's prosperous hardware industry which flourished in the mid and late nineteenth century. These manufacturing buildings are located along the Quinnipiac River and Penn Central Railroad (formerly the New Haven and Northhampton Railroad) that bisects the district and along the Eight Mile River that runs through the western edge of the district. A strip of commercial architecture runs east-west along Main and West Main Streets, connecting the Plantsville Historic District's two main residential concentrations. These areas are centered around the Plantsville Congregational Church on Church Street and the former Plantsville Baptist Church (now Faith Living Church) on Grove Street. A substantial strip of residential architecture also extends northward along Summer Street (formerly Water Street) near the course of the Quinnipiac River. The land in the Quinnipiac River flood plain is level; the terrain rises to the hills on Prospect Street and Summer Street on the north side of the district, and to Hillside Avenue and Grove Street on the south side. The Plantsville Historic District contains 248 buildings, of which 221 contribute to its architectural and historical significance. Of the 248 buildings, 166 are primary buildings — residences, stores, churches, and manufacturing facilities — and 82 are secondary buildings consisting primarily of barns and garages. Most of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings date from 1820 to 1935. ARCHITECTURE: Eleven different formal architectural styles can be identified in 99 of the Plantsville Historic District's buildings. The most prevalent style is Italianate, with 26 buildings, followed by Queen Anne (21), Colonial Revival (19), Victorian Gothic (8), Greek Revival (6), Bungalow/Craftsman (6), Shingle Style (5), Second Empire (3), Gothic Revival (2), Stick Style (2), and Late Gothic Revival (1). Primary buildings classified as "vernacular" or "no style" number 78, while 81 secondary buildings are identified. The majority of buildings in the Plantsville Historic District are single-family dwellings and their associated barns, garages, and other outbuildings. A number of single-family houses have been converted to multi-family dwellings, though with little or no change to the character of the buildings. Many of the houses such as those of Summer, West, Prospect and Elm Streets are located on deep lots with large setbacks. Streets such as Church, Grove, and South Main have smaller (but not crowded) lots. The houses in Plantsville typically display wood clapboard or shingle sheathing; flushboard and board-and-batten siding are also found. Wooden decorative elements such as bargeboards, brackets, and trusses are plentiful in the late nineteenth-century houses. A few of the barns and garages are embellished with architectural detail such as brackets, bargeboards, and cupolas, but most outbuildings are unadorned. Most of the houses are two stories in height, although one-story bungalows and cottages are scattered throughout the district. An occasional three-level tower rises above the average two-story height. The majority of houses are in good to excellent repair, with almost 100% occupancy throughout the district. Some have been altered with aluminum siding, enclosed porches, or new windows; however, most maintain a high degree of architectural integrity. The houses have well-tended lawns with mature deciduous and fir trees and abundant shrubbery. The industrial architecture is located in the Quinnipiac River and Eight Mile River flood plains. Most of these nineteenth and early twentieth century manufacturing complexes are currently occupied for industrial purposes or storage. The buildings range in height from one to four stories, and are constructed primarily of brick. Detailing such as brick corbelling, wooden brackets, and scrollwork embellished these otherwise utilitarian, vernacular industrial buildings. Many have newer aluminum or metal shed additions. Large paved areas surround most of the structures to facilitate parking, loading, and shipping functions. Plantsville's early commercial buildings consist of storefronts added to older dwellings. Many of the buildings have a gable-front orientation and are tightly spaced along the two main streets. Most commercial buildings are two or three stories, with commercial use of the first floor and residential, office, or meeting space occupying the upper levels. Brick and wood are the most common building materials. Most commercial buildings have little or no setback from the sidewalk, and little landscaping is evident. One public open space is found in the Plantsville Historic District — a small park located on Hillside Avenue between Grove and Maple Streets. Plantsville's six Greek Revival buildings illustrate a variety of forms common to the style. The Timothy Higgins House (1828) at 103 West Street uses the common form of a two-story, three-bay rectangular block with gable-front orientation, while the Samuel Clark House (c.1840) at 67 West Street employs a square main block with a pyramidal roof. The C.B. Cowles Store (1848) on West Main Street, with its gable-front orientation is an example of Greek Revival-style commercial architecture. A fully developed example of the Gothic Revival style is illustrated by the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866) on Church Street, designed by Josiah Cleveland Cady. The Plantsville Historic District's 26 Italianate buildings reflect the major variations of the style. The William Clark House (c.1860) at 40 Cowles Avenue is an example of a three-bay, square block house with a shallow hipped roof and centered one-story belvedere cupola. The Charles B. Cowles House (1873) at 35 Church Street employs a T-plan with a steeply pitched gable roof. The decorative bargeboards with acorn motif pendants reflects the influence of the Gothic Revival style. An example of Italianate style applied to commercial architecture is the John Collins Store at 756-762 Main Street (1840/1870). The Twichell/Ward House (1863) at 78 West Street provides an example of the Second Empire style. The house is dominated by its unusually broad and flared mansard roof and corner tower. The presence of dormers with steep gable roofs, carved bargeboards and pierced gable screens indicates the influence of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District contains eight Victorian buildings with strong Gothic influence. The seven residential examples possess elaborate decorative elements such as gable trusses and pierced screens contrasting simple plans and sheathings. A typical example is the James Brewer House (1866) at 302 Summer Street. An example of a simple Victorian Gothic cottage is found at 33 Church Street (c.1865). The 21 Queen Anne style buildings located in the Plantsville Historic District well illustrate the style's characteristic features — complexity of plan, asymmetry, combinations of exterior sheathings, and ornamentation. The William Cummings House (c.1890) at 28 Elm Street, with its highly asymmetrical plan and slender, two-story oriel with steeply flared roof and elaborate finial is the Plantsville Historic District's most complete example. A simpler, more vernacular expression of the style can be found at 28 Grove Street (c.1890). A large stock of Colonial Revival buildings, most of which are simple, vernacular expressions of the style are present in the Plantsville Historic District. An example of the Dutch Colonial style which employs the gambrel roof is found at 100 Church Street (c.1920). The most unusual Colonial Revival building is an early gas station at 740 Main Street (c.1910). The six Bungalow/Craftsman style houses located in the Plantsville Historic District illustrate the style's advocacy of simplicity in design, use of natural materials and a return to hand craftsmanship. The bungalow at 38 Elm Street (c.1920), with its simple plan, broad pitched roof, exposed rafters and cobblestone chimney is an example. Fifty-six primary buildings are not classified by a specific style. The residential architecture so identified is mostly two-story, wood-framed houses with minimal architectural detail. Industrial complexes range from the sprawling unembellished brick buildings of the Blakeslee Forging Company (1912) to the more decorative and refined H.D. Smith and Co. office (1882) on West Street. Significance The Plantsville Historic District is architecturally significant because of the outstanding quality, diversity, and high degree of preservation of its 258 buildings. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture documents the growth and development of a nineteenth-century industrial community. It contains excellent examples of eleven different architectural styles (plus vernacular examples) popular in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Plantsville Historic District contains many highly intact streetscapes. Included in the district is the Plantsville Congregational Church (1866), a Gothic Revival church designed by nationally prominent architect Josiah Cleveland Cady. It ranks as one of Connecticut's best examples of the Gothic Revival style. The Plantsville Historic District also includes remaining manufacturing buildings and complexes which gave Plantsville its industrial base. Architectural Significance The Plantsville Historic District is one of the finest concentrations of nineteenth century architecture in Southington. Contained in the Plantsville Historic District are all the architectural components of a nineteenth century industrial community — the manufacturing complexes, the houses of the industrialists and workers, and Plantsville's stores, churches and social halls. The Plantsville Historic District's architecture rivals or surpasses the concentrations of buildings at Southington Center which developed in a similar manner during the nineteenth century. In terms of the quality and quantity of architecture from that period, it surpasses Southington's other sub-centers of Marion and Milldale. The Plantsville Historic District's state of preservation is excellent, with the majority of the houses in very good condition and most of the original settlement pattern maintained.
