Harden House

Harden House

Originally the home of Frank A. Harden and his wife Elizabeth, and now a museum, the Harden House was left for the benefit of the community along with the Park’s 48 acres.

The building, built in the early 1940’s, overlooks a stunning view of a waterfall in a bend of the Still River. The location was chosen with care as it reminded Mr. Harden of his native homeland in Ireland. Throughout the Harden House are many paintings and artifacts acquired in their travels, as well as artwork commissioned by the Harden’s during their residence here. The museum contents remain in the original state of their living style the way it was in the 1940’s-1960’s before Mr. Harden’s death in 1965. The Harden House can be reserved for private functions, showers and weddings by clicking here.
