CT: Middlesex County- Haddam- Gillette Castle (Holiday)

William Gillette was the actor who originally played Sherlock Holmes who built a home which aligned to his character in CT.

During the holiday season they deck the halls of the castle! The actors and docents were engaged and very knowledgeable.

I very much enjoyed trying all the different latches of the doors. Gillette also had mirrors and secret doors to surprise his guests.

Tickets should be reserved in advance (link below). I chose sunset time as this is one of the recommended venues from which to gaze.
