If Hill-Stead strikes you as being more inviting and intimate than the typical museum, maybe it's because its original purpose was to be a home… a country house for a very real American family. A family of entrepreneurs, world travelers, avid readers, art lovers, and activists.
Rather than merely preserving the past, the people who lived, worked, and entertained here distinguished themselves by looking into the future. When the house was finished in June of 1901, the radical new ideas, technologies and social changes of the twentieth century were just around the corner.
