Weir Farm National Historical Park
CT Art Trail Member
Weir Farm National Historical Park, A National Park for the Arts, was home to three generations of American artists. Julian Alden Weir (1852-1919), America’s most beloved Impressionist, acquired the farm in 1882. After Weir, the artistic legacy was continued by his daughter, painter Dorothy Weir Young and her husband, sculptor Mahonri Young, followed by New England landscape painters Sperry and Doris Andrews. The views and buildings that inspired the artistic works of Weir, Young, Andrews and others – the Weir House, Weir and Young Studios, barns, gardens, woodlands and Weir Pond – are expertly preserved. Designed by artists, the park welcomes everyone to enjoy the power of creativity, art and nature as part of the American Experience.
