The Ghosts of History


  1. Start this getaway in Hartford at the Old State House, 800 Main Street. It's the oldest state house in America, built in 1796, where you can see a reenactment of the first Amistad trial of the African captives who took over the ship they were on and sought justice in the courts.
  2. Then head east on I-84 to I-384 to Rt. 44 and Coventry. Take Rte. 31 to the 1776 Nathan Hale Homestead on South Street. It's filled with original furnishings and memorabilia of our famous hero.
  3. Stay overnight in a cozy B&B and after breakfast, head south to Willimantic and check out the Frog Bridge...
