Postcards from The Glass House, New Canaan, CT, USA
Destinations

The Glass House - New Canaan, CT, USA - Photo by Luxury Experience Living in Connecticut, for years we have wanted to visit The Glass House in New Canaan. As it is only open for tours from May until November 30, somehow time slipped away from us each year without experiencing this architectural treasure built by the renowned American architect Philip Johnson. This year, we finally visited this National Trust Historic Site. Built between 1949 and 1995, The Glass House is nestled on 49-acres in the affluent town of New Canaan, Connecticut and consists of fourteen stunningly modern structures. Now a museum, Philip Johnson (1906 - 2005) lived in The Glass House from 1949 until his death in 2005.
