The Butler-McCook House & Garden is the only 18th-century home remaining on Hartford’s Main Street. It is a time capsule of Hartford’s past and the history of one family. Visitors are taken on a guided tour of the house that primarily focuses on the McCook family during the late 19th century and their artistic and intellectual interests. Guests will learn about a family who loved music, art, and travel through explorations of the museum’s collections which include paintings, Japanese samurai armor, furniture, and toys. 

The historic garden offers an oasis amid the cityscape, with formal elements designed by Jacob Weidenmann in 1865, as well as vestiges of earlier landscape elements.
