Boothe Memorial Park and Museum

8.3/10

Boothe Memorial Park and Museum sits on a 32-acre (130,000 m2) site in the north end of Stratford, Connecticut, USA. Built about 1840 and remodeled in 1914, it is said to be "The Oldest Homestead in America,"[] since it sits on the foundations of a 1663 house, and has been continuously occupied. In the late 1900s two brothers, David Beach Boothe and Stephen Nichols Boothe, created the Boothe Memorial Museum, which maintains a collection of architecturally unique buildings. Some of the structures include a carriage house, Americana Museum, miniature lighthouse and windmill, a clock tower museum, trolley station, chapel, blacksmith shop, and a variety of other buildings.

The park also contains the last remaining highway toll booth in Connecticut, from the Merritt Parkway, removed when toll booths were abolished in the state in the 1980s.

Boothe Memorial Park and Museum was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 1, 1985.
