    A National Historic Landmark, Hill-Stead Museum showcases Impressionist masterpieces by Monet, Manet, Degas, Whistler and Cassat in situ amid original furnishings. The 1901 Colonial Revival-style house was designed by pioneering female architect Theodate Pope Riddle as a retirement home for her parents. A centerpiece of the 152-acre property is the c. 1920 Sunken Garden designed by Beatrix Farrand, today the site of a summer-long poetry festival.
