About George "The Builder" Denison

In the early 1700’s the “grat haus” which Captain George had built on his “palisades” burned to the ground. In 1717, his grandson, known to the family as George the Builder, built the house we see today just west of the original site. It is known as Pequotsepos Manor; however, we assume that it acquired this name much later, possibly from Annie Gates or when it became a museum. That house stands today as a tribute to one of Connecticut’s first families.

On the land his grandfather was granted in 1654 and near where his "grate hous" had stood, in 1717 George Denison built Pequotsepos Manor for his bride, Lucy Gallup. Today, each room in the Manor House is furnished with Denison heirlooms, and each room represents one of five distinct periods in American history.
