The Hill-Stead Museum became a National Historic Landmark in 1991. Situated on 152 acres of property, it provides an outstanding example of a colonial Revival domestic architecture. The Museum boasts of outstanding art pieces by Manet, Monet, Degas, Cassatt, Whistler, and others. These art pieces are shown together with the furnishings and decorative arts in a condition similar to the time when Pope and the Riddle families used it as a residence. The site?s main house is made more beautiful by a Sunken Garden that features period plantings that were restored after the original Beatrix Farrand design.

Today, visitors to the Museum will still see the 18th century farm house, Pope Riddle House, carriage garage, the Arts and Crafts Theater, stone pump house, and many other areas.
