We're hoping you and your loved ones are doing well. After a great deal of soul-searching and discussion, the Board of Directors has come to the difficult decision to postpone all of our events for 2020. Under the current circumstances, we feel that we should put this year on "pause".
But, that doesn't mean we don't have plans...
Since we're holding off on events, we thought we'd get some long-overdue updates done inside our historic building, specifically some painting of our second floor museum and continued work on our third-floor ballroom. So, although this year we're taking a break from visitors, it's going to be really exciting to see what we've accomplished when we reopen to the public in 2021.
And, speaking of 2021, we're going to be celebrating a big milestone - our 50th anniversary! That's right, our restoration, which came into being in 1971, is going to be 50! So, stay tuned! We're planning to have some great events to welcome everyone back.
We wish you all the best, and here's to a wonderful 2021!
Plan a Visit
Come visit the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration
We're at 1 Brown's Forge Road Gaylordsville CT, so we're super easy to get to from north or south - use our handy google map to get directions.
We're about 12 minutes from New Milford, about 15 from Kent. The Hotel is open for tours on Sunday afternoons in July and August. We have three annual shows that are held in the spring, fall and near the Christmas holiday.
At other times of the year, please give a call to make sure we can show you around if you plan on visiting during the week (or the winter!). We love visitors but we are an all-volunteer organization so appointments must be made for visits.
There is great dining in Kent or New Milford, and some terrific places to overnight and get away from the hustle and bustle - spend a whole day and enjoy the sights.
