Tarrywile Park & Mansion: Hiking, Tours and Scenic Views
A truly beautiful destination, Tarrywile Park & Mansion is one of Connecticut's greatest treasures. Built in 1896, this sprawling 23-room Victorian mansion is a fascinating attraction all its own. A fine example of Victorian-era American home architecture, the mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. What makes this destination so inviting, however, is the 21 miles of surrounding trails, ponds and vistas, which provide an stunning landscape for hiking, picnics and magical weddings. Tour this historic Danbury estate and feel inspired by a unique combination of natural and architectural beauty.
