Vacation at the Bantam Lake House

Today, Litchfield County is considered the summer playground of the wealthy. Apparently the area of Bantam Lake served as a resort of sorts in the 1870s. Recently added to the collection is the guest book from the Bantam Lake House, 1875-1878. Many of the visitors were from Litchfield County, some were from New York State, and some came from Hartford. The most noteable visitors were Sitting Bull and Ulysses S. Grant, whose signatures grace these pages. More information on the Bantam Lake House would be welcome.
