Take a step back in time at the The Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society. Located in the restored 18th-century birthplace and childhood home of Noah Webster, the creator of the first American dictionary and “Blue-Backed Speller”, this museum provides a fascinating glimpse into his life, as well as the local community. As a founding father of our country, Webster is credited with creating the American English we use today. Learn about his contributions to American culture using either a tablet or guided tour. While you're there, check out the exhibits, watch an intro video in the one-room schoolhouse theater, and visit the museum gift shop. Don't forget to leave time for the kids to experience Noah's Discovery Learning Center!
