Nathan Hale Homestead Museum, Coventry, CT Photos

The Nathan Hale Homestead Museum in Coventry, CT, was the family home of Nathan Hale (1755-76) who spied on the British for American Revolutionary forces. He was caught and hanged by the British in September, 1776. His alleged last words, "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country," add to his American fame. The house itself was built by Nathan's father, Richard Hale (1717-1802) in 1776 in Georgian style. It is run by Connecticut Landmarks.
