We were visiting Family in Monroe and heard about Booth Memorial and decided to make the stop. I’m glad we did because it was a beautiful day to walk around the grounds, see the flowers, the Railway Society and all the other buildings.

Lovely place to visit, picnicking or otherwise. A little creepy in the buildings, park is supposed to be visited by a man dressed as Abe Lincoln, I’m not kidding!

We spent 90 minutes here. Got to see so.e wonderful buildings. Got to learn about Boothe Brothers history in Stratford, CT. We had several volunteers who fill in the blanks on their lives.

The vision of David Beach Boothe and Stephen Nichols Boothe with a collection of building designs including a carriage house, Americana Museum, genealogy library, miniature lighthouse, windmill, clock tower museum, a trolley station, a chapel, tollbooth, coliseum, and a blacksmith shop. A few highlights:

Built for a Ford Motor Company competition — The blacksmith shop with 44 sides instead of 4, stores 5 times the equipment. They also used 1000 stacked horseshoes— just because they wanted to see what it looks like.

One of the most unusual buildings — the Redwood Building is made from California Redwood shipped through Panama Canal. The Boothe brothers used 4’ x 6’ timbers, glass blocks instead of windows, and galvanized dowels instead of nails.

It's an amusing and playful expression of architecture. It's also the home of the Railway Society with working model trains — a great stop for kids.

We were there before the museum opened. However the buildings and gardens are beautiful. I say less then an hour but easily could be longer if the museum was open or picnicking

Historic spot to check out in Stratford, and really feels like you are stepping back in time. Gorgeous flowers during the summer and has a nice area for a picnic.

Stratford was close to our hotel for our first night of USA 2019. Saw a flyer in our hotel in Milford for Boothe Memorial Park and Museum and decide to go there before heading to Mystic.
Unfortunately it was closed but we toured the site ourselves and peeked in windows. The grounds are really well kept and it looks like you can picnic there in the summertime. It has something for everyone including a aviary. We enjoyed about two hours here

My husband and I walked the grounds and relaxed. We enjoyed the beautiful flowers and nature. We ate a picnic lunch and just relaxed. Nice buildings to see.

I go there often. Great energy and they care for the grounds. As a kid I tobogganed down the slopes, flew kites in spring and “Toll Booths” I believe the Booth Family were the gift to Stratford. I have pictures of my young daughter dancing around them when they first arrived.
Love that place...
