Weir Farm Information

Weir Farm National Historic Site celebrates the life and work of American Impressionist Painter J. Alden Weir, and preserves the artist's home and studio.

In the summer of 1882, American Impressionist painter J. Alden Weir boarded a train from New York bound for his modest farm among rolling hills in Branchville, Connecticut. Far from the commotion of the city, Weir and his family transformed their summer retreat into a creative refuge for friends and fellow artists.

The landscape of Weir Farm has now been a source of inspiration for artists for more than 120 years. Three artists, American Impressionist Julian Alden Weir, sculptor Mahonri Young and painter Sperry Andrews, made the farm their home. Today, the 60-acre National Historic Site preserves not only the homes, studios and barns of the farm, but also the rolling hills, fields, and distinctive stone walls that still inspire visitors and painters today.
