Welcome to the Old Governor Plant House. David Plant Esq. built this Greek revival home as similar homes were being built to reinforce the nation's aspirations to emulate ancient Greek democracies. Plant's political career spanned local government as Stratford's first Probate Judge, state government as a legislator, speaker of the house, lieutenant governor and federal government as a U.S. congressman. His daughter married Captain John Sterling and their son John became the lawyer for many of the Gilded Age barons including John D. Rockefeller. These relationships allowed John to amass a considerable fortune he then left to Yale making possible its law building, chemistry lab, science buildings, medical building and main library. He build Sterling House,which now serves as a community center, for his mother and sister, . The last Plant to reside in the home was Susan Plant Bunnell, widow of Dr. Frank Scott Bunnell, an educator who served as chairman of the Board of Education. This exquisite historic home pays homage to the lineage that resided within its walls. A welcoming foyer with curved balustrade, arched doorways and french doors to the screened porch invite all those in to experience gracious living from an era almost lost. The main level affords a great flow for entertaining and the upper level ample room for family and guests. Situated at the foot of Academy Hill and in the heart of the historic district, this home is waiting to inspire its next owner.
