The Butler-McCook House & Garden is a wonderful time capsule right on Main Street in downtown Hartford. Nestled between Bushnell Park and developing Front Street, this Georgian Colonial homestead is the oldest residence in this capital city. Steps from City Hall and the Wadsworth Atheneum it should not be missed, for all the wonderful objects serve as memorials of days of historical importance. The house is open for tour on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 12-4, but the garden is open all week. Pass peacefully through the Victorian garden smelling the roses (literally), spotting colorful birds, and communing with woodland greenery. There is also the Main Street History Center attached, as well as a modest art gallery spotlighting a different local artist each month. A museum that offers something for everyone - history buffs, gardeners, art lovers, architects, young and old.
