AAA Editor Notes
Seth Thomas-Bradstreet House Museum, 237 Main St., was the early-1800s home of clockmaker and businessman Seth Thomas, founder of the Seth Thomas Clock Company. After Thomas' death in 1859, the town of Plymouth Hollow, Conn., was renamed “Thomaston” in his honor.
Guided tours include 13 rooms of the restored 1820s Greek Revival home, where such original furnishings as an 1840s secretary desk, 1900s lighting fixtures and American Empire period tables can be seen. Visitors may also see a Seth Thomas grandfather clock and mantel clocks from the early 1800s.
Note: There are no restroom facilities inside the house.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 45 minutes minimum.
