About the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum

Located in the heart of Connecticut’s largest historic district, the Museum consists of three authentically restored 18th-century homes, and provides the quintessential New England experience, from the American Revolution to the early 20th century. Tours include the 1752 Joseph Webb House, where General George Washington met with French General Rochambeau, and planned the military campaign leading to the end of the Revolutionary War; the 1770 Silas Deane House, built for America’s first diplomat to France; and the 1788 Isaac Stevens House – depicting life in the 18th and 19th centuries through original family objects and a fascinating children’s exhibit.
