About Nathan Hale Homestead

Updated 1/7/21: In an effort to protect the health of its staff and visitors, Connecticut Landmarks’ Historic Properties, including the Nathan Hale Homestead, will continue to follow the guidance set forth by the CDC and state officials regarding social distancing.

On-site, in-person tours of the homestead are currently unavailable as we try to do our part to keep our staff and visitors healthy during the winter months. Zoom info sessions will continue to be available.

The health of our staff and our community remain our first priority and we appreciate your understanding.

Nathan Hale Homestead is a historic wedding venue located in Coventry, Connecticut. Being the birthplace of Connecticut's state hero, Nathan Hale, the homestead is a cherished local place-of-interest. It features an 18th-century English-style barn that is framed with rare gunstock timber, a 19th-century dairy barn fashioned with a charming aesthetic and a service prep area, and a paved patio that can host a forty-by-forty-foot tent. The homestead is surrounded by stone walls and a lush forest, adding to the pleasant atmosphere of the entire property.

Facilities and Capacity

The English-style barn can be used for exciting and lively occasions such as cocktail hours, reception dances, or jovial dinners. The barn can fit up to fifty people in a seated dinner event. To help your event come to life, the dairy barn can be used as a prep area and comes complete with a refrigerator, a freezer, a warming oven, and a service window that overlooks the patio. Each of the barns has been lovingly restored, adorned with dimmable lighting and modern amenities such as fans, air-conditioning, and electrical outlets. Behind the barns is an expansive green space that allows up to 250 guests to enjoy your wedding event under the shade of a tented seating area.

    Wonderful Experienxe & Absolutely Beautiful Location

    To the reader. Our sweet daughter married the man of her dreams September of 2018.

    I can’t say enough about the absolutely wonderful experience we had working with the skilled team at The Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry, CT. Not only was the experience wonderful but the grounds lovely making the photographs of the event lasting, lovely memories and the day so very special.

    We started cocktail hour on the back patio with a wonderful clear tent. wine barrel high top tables and chairs and lovely dimmed chandelier lighting rented from Taylor Rental in Manxhester CT.

    The Food was catered by The Brownstone five star caterer our guests are still raving about the food and stunning presentation and fully stocked bar. The professionalism of the catering staff, outstanding chef, selection and presentation of the finest foods was well behind what I could have ever imagined. Did I mention the after party and live DJ Mark the Shark who rocked the stunningly decorated barn adorned with crystal chandeliers. sweeping large curtains from the large barn doors, 100s of twinkling votive lights on the barn shelf’s and stunning floral arrangements from Sticks and Stones, Tolland CT and Sams Club floral.

    The dessert taste of the evening was the wedding cake from Modern Bakery in Hartford, CT, an assortment of outstanding homemade pastries from our Five Star + Caterer The Brownstone. Paterson, NJ and a selection of homemade Italian Ice from Chets Italian Ice to cool down those on the dance floor.

    This truly was the event of the year and went off without a hitch thanks to the team at Nathan Hale Homestead and our absolutely experienced caterer Mr. Tommy Manzo owner of The Brownstone. One last call out to Ms. Debbie Vinick the wonderful Harpist who provided a great selection of dinner music under our beautiful Taylor Rental Sail tent in the lovely field at the Nathan Hale Homestead.

    In closing The Nathan Hale Homestead has so much to offer. While we looked at many other barns The Nathan Hale Homestead is so unique not only in its landscape beauty but the opportunity for the guests to have guided tours of the Homestead during your event. The facility also offers f 3 barns to do what you wish. We chose the main barn for our dance hall, the smaller barn for our Candy bar, the back barn for one of our 2 bars, main barn stalls for serving Italian ice and lower barn stall for bridal party space. No other venue we visited offered this much space to do what you wish.

    Five Star all the way. Let you Imigration run wild as you plan your special wedding day at this absolutely stunning location. It was so beautiful and so much fun that I would do it all over again.

    God Bless and hope your day is as special as ours ways.

    Take care!
