West Side Day House 1

Built in 1884 for Franklin and Mary Porter Chamberlin in the Nook Farm neighborhood of Hartford CT.  Queen Anne in style, it was designed by the architect Francis Kimball.  It is a 20 room building that features nature inspired carvings both outside and inside.  Named after Harriet Beecher Stowe’s grand niece, today it is used as the administrative offices of the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center.  It is not open to the public, but the exterior architecture is enchanting.
