Although July 4 is the headlined day to celebrate patriotism and the birth of America, an aura of national pride has settled across the entire month.
What better way to celebrate America than wear some stylish stars and stripes and stroll through the grounds of a historic American home.

A Connecticut state park in Derby, the property was once the estate of Frances Osborne Kellogg, an American leader in conservation, business and agriculture. The property features extensive gardens. The centerpiece of the attraction is the Osborne home, which was built in the 19th century.
