There is a Colonial Revival garden out back and a 19th-century barn. The Silas Deane House has been restored to a mid-18th century appearance. The Isaac Stevens House has been restored to reflect a middle-class family of the 1820s-1830s using many original family items.The Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum also manages the nearby 1715 Buttolph-Williams House which is owned by Connecticut Landmarks.

  • unlike NY. CT. values their old homes. CT has so meaning historical house its one of the best states in the New England area. which makes Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum a wonderful stop. not only do you have the museum but the surrounding area is loaded with old homes which makes a great walk around town. the guides are very nice, litrtle gift shop and a very nice historical house that is now a restaurant. even my 12 year old enjoyed it. this in my book is a must to see. i hope you feel the same. in this post there will be a few picture of the restaurant and other homes that are near by.
  • Nice, historic warm place to visit. Lot of stuff and good prices.
  • Had my wedding here and could not be happier with the entire venue. From Katie to the atmosphere of the barn. It was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. Beautiful scenery for pictures.
  • The Webb Barn was a great wedding venue. Beautiful grounds.
  • Wonderful museum. Hamilton events were stellar. Looking forward to future programs
