The Day – Estuary magazine presents a new article on actor William Gillette and his house


Gillette Castle State Park will be featured in an article to be featured in the Fall 2021 edition of Estuary magazine.

“Gillette Castle is a unique Connecticut treasure that continues to improve under the direction of the State Park,” said Shriver.
