About the book

Weir Farm National Historic Site is Connecticut's first national park and the only one in America dedicated to painting.  No other book chronicles the property's rescue from residential development to its establishment as a park.  The story is told through the only artistic photographic collection documenting Weir Farm National Historic Site, most of which has never been published before.  Weir Farm was the home of Julian Alden Weir (1852–1919), a leading innovator of American Impressionism.  The farm's landscape inspired countless masterpieces created by Weir, his famous painter-friends, two subsequent generations of artist-owners, and contemporary artists who continue to create at the park.  In 2020, this iconic site will be featured on the U.S. quarter.
