Henry Bowen, a successful New York businessman, returned to his hometown in 1846 to establish a retreat where he entertained friends and others which included four U.S. presidents. The boxwood-edged parterre gardens planted in the 1850’s still exist as do other features of the property including an icehouse, an aviary and Connecticut’s oldest surviving indoor bowling alley.
