About
Description
The Wallingford Victorian Inn regally presides over the corners of North Main Street and Curtis Avenue in Wallingford, CT. Once the site of a quaint cottage sheltered by trellises and grape arbors, in 1890 the ...More property was purchased and the cottage razed to make way for a Grand Queen Anne Victorian. Designed by the firm of Allen and Tyler Architectural Associates of New Haven, it was constructed by the C.F. Wooding Company of Wallingford, a name that to this day connotes excellence in craftsmanship, constructed at a time when execution of detail and ornamentation was a hand crafted trade. The Victorian is comprised of one dramatic hallmark of the period after another; complex patterned masonry chimneys; finials capping hipped slate roofs; multi patterned textures of shingles and clapboard; intricate relief work (grapes that reflect its humble origins), and small latticed porches, just to name a few. According to local historians, originally it was a wedding gift to Georgianna Simpson Hull and Charles Tibbits from her parents Gurdon W. Hull and Elizabeth Simpson Hull, whose father founded Simpson, Hall & Miller Company, a prominent silver manufacturer which later became International Silver. The family is steeped in Wallingford history and they were true philanthropists. No expense or detail was spared in the construction of this handcrafted home. Over the past century and a quarter the Victorian has watched over the town of Wallingford as it grew and more buildings sprung up. The dirt roads became asphalt, and horse and carriage gave way to motor vehicles. Fashions and trends flicked by in the blink of an eye. Still it stood, rising on its corner, an enduring landmark in the cycle of change. It has prospered in good times, and endured the hard times. It has changed hands and purpose, yet still stands proud. Come, step back in time with us, when work, rest and recreation ebbed and flowed with the rhythms of nature. Enjoy this remarkable property surrounded by period furnishings. Stay over and enjoy one of our five suites with exquisite attention to detail. In the morning awake to a gourmet breakfast made just for you by our chef innkeeper. Come, enjoy all this in a turn-of-the-century, handcrafted Victorian mansion, The Wallingford Victorian Inn. Less
