The Nathan B. Lattin Farm is a historic farm at 22 Walker Hill Road in Newtown, Connecticut. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1] It consists of 58 acres (23 ha) of land historically associated with the farmstead, which includes a c. 1750 farmhouse, a period icehouse, a 20th-century reproduction of an older barn, and the foundational remnants of other outbuildings. The farmhouse is a three-bay Colonial with a side-gable roof and a large central chimney, and is built on a fieldstone foundation. The house lacked modern amenities, including plumbing and electricity, until 1978. The property was farmed until about 1897, after which it was used as a summer residence.[2]
