4 pm. The Rise, Fall and Preservation of Elegance in the Phelps-Hatheway House, Suffield, presented by Lynn Mervosh, Connecticut Landmarks. A collaboration of the Civic Committee of the Salisbury Association and the Scoville Memorial Library The later years of the 18th century ushered in a period of elegance in Connecticut that seemed to openly contradict the ravages left by the War of Independence. The Phelps Hatheway House in Suffield, CT offers evidence of this significant rise in both prominence and consciousness of the individual that would long endure. A close examination of the family history, architecture and decoration of this property tells a magnificent but nonetheless tragic tale of two families set during the time of our country's great emergence.
