Friday, November 28 and Saturday, November 29 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 pm


After you have celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends, step outside and celebrate the rich history of Essex, Connecticut. The historic Pratt House, which is located at 19 West Avenue in Essex, will be open to visitors Friday, November 28 and Saturday, November 29 from 12-3 p.m. The house, which was built in 1701, continues to interpret 18th-century farm life and the nine generations of Pratt Smithies, many of whom lived there. Its barn, traditional herb garden, and lovely meadow complete the pastoral setting of a New England farmhouse. Take a tour of the house with one of Essex Historical Society's knowledgeable docents and be transported to a bygone era. Admission is free.
