The Coley Homestead dates back to the 19th century. Learn the history of this former working farm, its buildings which include the Coley House circa 1841, the Coley Barn circa 1883 as well as its numerous outbuildings – a carriage house and bunkhouse – one of the last in Connecticut. Learn about generations of the Coley family who lived and worked on the homestead, and explore the history of farming in Weston with a brief visit inside the Coley Barn. An overview of the town’s history will be woven in throughout the tour.
The tour takes place outside. Please wear sturdy footwear and dress for the weather.
