For almost 50 years, Joshua Hempsted described everyday life. His house, built in 1678, was home to nine generations of Hempsteds. Adjacent is a rare 18th-century stone house built by his grandson, Nathaniel. The Joshua Hempsted house is the only Underground Railway stop open to the public on the Connecticut Freedom Trail.
