The Nathan Hale Homestead was the home of the family of State Hero, Nathan Hale. Constructed in 1776, the current house is the second dwelling built on the property. Nathan’s father, Richard Hale, was a prosperous livestock farmer and built the house for his large family. Ardent patriots, six of Richard’s eight sons served in the patriot army. One son, Capt. Nathan Hale was caught and hanged as a spy at age 21 by the British in September of 1776.
East Haddam, Connecticut
General, History, Historic House, Historical Society
Hale complained in a letter to a former college classmate of the "remote life in the wilderness called Moodus", and he left East Haddam just before spring to take over the Union Grammar School in the "big city" of New London. Had it not been for the growing war clouds and eventual struggle the schoolhouse on the green at Chapman's Ferry would have been forgotten, as Hale departed with little or no fanfare that winter of 1773.

The Norwalk Historical Society was incorporated in 1899 with the purpose of promoting and encouraging historical research in Norwalk. That vision is kept alive today with the re-establishment of the NHS in 1949 and the continued focus on “the research, preservation, and promotion of interest in the history of Norwalk.” Members of the NHS bring Norwalk’s history to the public eye through contributions, donations, and volunteer time in a variety of NHS sponsored activities.
