Hartford's Katherine Day House

Above is the Katherine Day House in Hartford, Connecticut, named for Katherine Seymour Day (1870-1964) who bought the historic home to save it from demolition. Day was the grandniece of Harriet Beecher Stowe. The Day House, right next to the home of Harriet Beecher Stowe (have a look at this post on the Harriet Beecher Stowe house), is part of the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, housing the research library and administrative offices.

The home was built in 1884, designed in the Queen Anne style by architect Francis H. Kimball for owners Franklin and Mary Chamberlain. An ornate wood and granite house, a marvel of striking detail and 19th century opulence.
