Perched along the banks of the Housatonic River in Kent is the stunning site of the Eric Sloane Museum. The eponymous Sloane (1905-1985), long-time Connecticut author, artist and Colonial expert, is perhaps best known for his landscape paintings, capturing the serene beauty of New England. The museum grounds include a full size model of an authentic 19th-century home, the Noah Blake Cabin, which is a reference from Diary of an Early American Boy, one of Sloane’s 38 books.
