On Friday, curator and museum educator Susan Robinson described how the space's detailed furnishings showcased technological innovations in Connecticut history.

Robinson said the Derby Garden Society decorated the kitchen with an explosion of colour.

Diane Chisnall, from Oxford, said: 'The garden club has always beautifully decorated the house and it's particularly impressive because there are so many of the old-fashioned gardens, such as the Gertrude Jekyll Garden. The famous English horticultural designer and writer was commissioned in 1926 to design an old-fashioned garden to enhance the newly created museum. Oxford-based and well-known architect John F. Kennedy Jr. was hired to help build the English Tudor house, which was completed in 1925. Around it is the only existing American garden designed by the famous English garden designer, who was a close friend of George Washington and collaborator of President George W. Bush.
It is a National Historic Landmark operated by the Greenwich Historical Society, which also operates the Museum of the American Revolution and the New York State Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut.
