The 50-acre Palmer-Warner property in East Haddam was home to preservation architect Frederic Palmer & his partner Howard Metzger from 1945 - 1971. The 18th-c. house remains untouched since Metzger's death in 2005. The rich material culture collection includes American Colonial, Victorian & Colonial Revival furniture; porcelain, glass, & silver; paintings & decorative objects; & many personal belongings. The archives encompass Palmer's architectural papers & drawings; personal photographs; correspondence between Palmer & Metzger during WWII; & Metzger's correspondence & papers.

Connecticut Landmarks is preparing to open the property as Connecticut's first historic site focused primarily on presenting LGBTQ history. We need your help to raise $1 m to preserve & renovate the Palmer-Warner Barn to create a Visitor Welcome, Event & Exhibit Center. Please join us!
