Wedding: Hill-Stead Museum

Sunday, September 02, 2007, @ 4:00 P.M. 

Guests can arrive as early as 4:00 P.M. to enjoy a complimentary tour of the Hill-Stead Museum, a nationally recognized historic landmark.

 

Tours are designed around a relaxed open house format with historic interpreters stationed in every room.  Guests can spend as little or as much time in each room as desired.

 

Hill-Stead was built from 1898 – 1901 following the architectural designs of McKim, Mead & White and Theodate Pope Riddle, the only child of retired malleable iron industrialist Alfred Atmore Pope and Gilded Age Midwestern socialite Ada Brooks Pope.

 

Hill-Stead, a remarkable example of the Colonial Revival style, was meant to be the retirement home and gentleman’s farm of the Popes.  The Popes’ new primary residence also served as a showcase for Alfred Pope’s impressive collection of Impressionist masterpieces, including works by Cassatt, Degas, Monet, Manet, and Whistler.

 

The Hill-Stead Museum was established in 1947 at the bequest of Theodate Pope Riddle, and is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.


Reception: Hartford City Hall
