The Huntington Homestead in Scotland, Connecticut, is the birthplace of Samuel Huntington, a distinguished statesman during the Revolutionary War and early Republic.
The remarkably well-preserved site includes an eighteenth-century house on its original foundation surrounded by acres of farmland, bordered by Merrick Brook. It includes old growth trees, stone walls, an abandoned road, and other interesting features.
