Connecticut is rich with historic places where the actions, decisions, and battles of the Colonial and Revolutionary periods actually took place. Many buildings from those times are alive and in use, remaining strong and dynamic through centuries. Staying at a historic inn or bed and breakfast or other type of lodging puts you in the heart of this state's foundational American history. Historic lodgings man be located in ancient buildings that actually served as hotels for travelers on horseback or stagecoach. Some are in re-created buildings, like old main street stores or industrial buildings. In all cases, the spirit of the places are carefully maintained.
