The Seventh Sister of Connecticut

By Linda Tancs

At Connecticut’s southernmost of hills known as the Seven Sisters, actor/director/playwright William Hooker Gillette built a twenty-four-room mansion reminiscent of a medieval castle.  The fieldstone structure with a southern white oak woodwork interior is part of Gillette Castle State Park, an East Haddam treasure accessible from road or ferry.  In fact, from late April to late November take the Chester-Hadlyme ferry across the Connecticut River from Chester for majestic views of the clifftop castle.  The castle is open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day but the park is open year round.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all
is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Appreciate it
