Witness the work of Connecticut icons who prove "you are what you build."

Many intriguing structures and pristine architecture preserve Connecticut's legacy. The one most immediately credited to its tenant: Hartford's Mark Twain house. Twain and his family lived in the Gothic landmark from 1874 to 1891, a span the author called the happiest and most productive period of his life. Twain wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and other classic works in his third-floor billiard room.
