Featured Stories

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.
