Carriage House Museum

Mr. Stillman, an accomplished equestrian, built Wethersfield Stables to house riding horses for fox hunting and recreation, as well as a Carriage House in order to accommodate Hackney horses and revive the declining art of carriage driving.

Over the years, twenty-two carriages were acquired and meticulously restored. All of the carriages in the collection date from 1850 to 1910. During Stillman’s lifetime, houseguests at Wethersfield were treated to daily carriage rides on the approximately twenty miles of carriage trails on the estate. The collection is available for the public to view with advanced reservations.

The Wethersfield Institute provides  cultural, spiritual, and intellectual programs through the generosity and support of people like you.

Wethersfield is privately maintained by the Wethersfield Foundation, and relies on your generosity and support to conserve the estate and make its gardens and grounds available for public use.

With a focus on restoration, Friends of Wethersfield funds conservation projects that maintain the estate, gardens, and grounds in accordance with their original aesthetic splendor.

The garden and trails are closed for the season.
