Museum Website

The Farnsworth Homestead is a historic site at the Farnsworth Art Museum. The Greek Revival home has original Victorian furnishings. 

Built in 1854 by William A. Farnsworth, it is an excellent late example of Greek Revival architecture, and was the home of Lucy Farnsworth, the major benefactor of the Farnsworth Art Museum, which owns the house and operates it as a museum property. 

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
