In the 1860s, David Lyman II started building the Airline Railroad, opening a vital pathway from New York to Boston. Now, to celebrate our 275th Anniversary, we honor the man responsible building for the railroad. Take a first-class journey through history – and 350,000 red and yellow sunflowers – in our train-themed Sunflower Maze!
Open Daily beginning July 30th
$1 of each admission is donated to the Connecticut Children's Medical Center Pediatric Cancer Unit. Over the past 9 years, you've helped us donate over $67,700 to CCMC.
