The Bellamy-Ferriday House and Garden is a historic landmark in the small town of Bethlehem, Connecticut. It was first owned by Reverend Joseph Bellamy, the area?s most prominent preacher and leader in the mid to late 1700s. The house itself was completed around 1767.

The restoration and further beautification of the property started when the Ferriday family acquired it in 1912. Caroline Ferriday worked hard to cultivate its beautiful gardens with flowers, as well as a historic willow tree which is said to have once stood by Napoleon Bonaparte?s grave.

Upon Caroline Ferriday?s demise in 1990, she bequeathed the Bellamy-Ferriday House and Garden to the Antiquarian and Landmarks Society or Connecticut Landmarks today, who turned it into a museum upon Ferriday?s will terms. The house is also a National Historic Place.
