Saves: 3

This wood-frame structure surrounded by a peaceful garden was the home of American lexicographer, Noah Webster. He is renowned for compiling dictionaries as well as political writing. He edited the Federalist Papers at the request of Alexander Hamilton. The house remained a private resident until 1962 and thereafter it was turned into a museum. Along with artifacts and original books/papers, the museum is furnished an decorated true to the style of the Colonial era. It's a fun and informative way to learn about not only the man for whom a dictionary is named, but also about life in the 1700s. (Submitted by Shirley Beauchemin Thurston)
