Our Family Tradition

It all began here in the Pequotsepos Valley in the year 1654. In that cold and snowy December, Capt. George Denison, his wife Ann Borodell and their family and neighbors gathered close around a roaring fire in their small cabin to give thanks and celebrate the bountiful harvest that would see them through the winter. Since that time, generations of this family have carried on the tradition of hospitality and opened the doors of this old Manor House to travelers from near and far.

As we approach our 302nd year in the life of this historic home, we invite you to visit us in 2019 and experience our family tradition while immersing yourself in the story of the Denisons, and for the children, our new doll house museum with its miniature worlds.

Snowflakes swirl, carols ring and from our home to yours, the entire extended Denison Family and Staff send very Warm Wishes for a Happy Holiday Season.

Check back in the new year for our calendar of events.
