Connecticut State Parks

Actor William Gillette never referred to his East Haddam home as a castle, but he did call it his Hadlyme Stone Heap. After his passing in 1937, the park system was able to acquire the castle and grounds with the generous help of the Connecticut Forest and Park Association and open to the public in 1943.
