Connecticut Landmarks You Must Visit

Connecticut Landmarks You Must Visit

We’re excited to welcome a new CT Ambassador, Deb Cohen of The Front Door Project, a blog dedicated to memorable and unique architecture, including the beautiful, welcoming appeal of front doors throughout Connecticut and beyond. Deb recently took a trip to a few of Connecticut’s most intriguing landmarks, and she shares her experience here.

What is a landmark, exactly? Is it a building? A statue? A rock? All of the above can be true! Among other definitions, Merriam-Webster describes it as “a conspicuous object on land that marks a locality”, or “a structure of unusual historical and usually aesthetic interest”. Like any state, Connecticut has its own unique set of landmarks and I set out recently to learn more about those both familiar and new to me. Although by no means comprehensive, the following are unquestionably high on the list of places residents and visitors alike should be sure to see as they explore all that Connecticut has to offer.
