The Glass House Responds to COVID-19
March 23, 2020

During these uncertain times and out of concern for the health and safety of our community, staff, and visitors due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Glass House site is temporarily closed for all off-season activity including private tours.

The Glass House public tour season opening has been postponed until at least May 1. This date subject to change. We are carefully monitoring the situation locally and regionally following the CDC, Connecticut government and local health department and EOC guidelines. The National Trust will make an announcement at least two weeks before our scheduled opening date as to the status of visiting the site. We encourage you to check online for up-to-date information.

We support our local community during these difficult times and encourage you to visit the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce website for the most up-to-date information on how to help local businesses and community initiatives.

The Glass House is a not-for-profit organization. We rely on the generosity of our community members like you for support. Please consider purchasing a gift certificate for future use, making a donation, becoming a member, or making a purchase from our Design Store.

Please find information and videos from past programs and preservation work on our website. The National Trust’s online collections portal features objects and exhibits from other historic sites’ collection including the Glass House collection.

Thank you again for your support.
The Glass House wishes you and yours continued wellness, safety, and good health.

Sincerely,
Gregory Sages, Executive Director, The Glass House
