Weir Farm National Historic Site

Size: 60 Acres

Overview: In the summer of 1882, J. Alden Weir, an impressionist painter based in New York City, boarded a train for his farm in Branchville, Connecticut, where he and his family converted their summer home into a retreat for friends and artists. Following Weir, artists Mahonri Young and Sperry Andrews took residence at the farm, maintaining a tradition of artistic expression that continues to this day.
