Although raised in Missouri, he said the years he spent in Connecticut were his happiest and most productive. Recently named as one of the “Ten Best Historic Homes in the World” by National Geographic, the Victorian home measures 11,500 square feet with 25 rooms distributed through three floors. Time Magazine refers to the home as “Downtown Abbey’s American Cousin”!

Following our house tour, we’ll enjoy lunch at the trendy Salute Restaurant in downtown Hartford. Today’s buffet features baked ziti Bolognese, grilled chicken and grilled salmon accompanied by salad and grilled vegetables. During our luncheon, Mark Twain (aka John Pogson) will mingle and entertain the group with his satirical sense of humor.

Don’t miss this event!  In addition to the house tour, today, we’ll enjoy some playful wisdom from a man who refused to live life too seriously! Trip cost is $99 for Prime Time members and $109 for guests.
