Weir Farm National Historic Site
In the summer of 1882, American Impressionist painter J. Alden Weir boarded a train from New York bound for his modest farm among rolling hills in Branchville, Connecticut. Far from the commotion of the city, Weir and his family transformed their summer retreat into a creative refuge for friends and fellow artists. After Weir, Sculptor Mahonri Young and painter Sperry Andrews followed, and continued a legacy of artistic expression at Weir Farm that still inspires today.
