Uriel Tuttle House

3925 Torringford Street, Torrington, CT 06790

Uriel Tuttle (1779-1849) built this house in 1802 and it has been widely regarded as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Tuttle was the president of the Litchfield County Anti-Slavery Society and the Connecticut Anti-Slavery Society. An excerpt from a letter written upon the death of Tuttle attests to his dedication to the abolitionist cause:

“His efforts and undying zeal in the cause of emancipation are too well known to the public in this state to need a delineation… His house was literally a place of refuge for the panting fugitive, and his purse and team were often employed to help him forward to a place of safety.”

This home is privately owned and not open to the public.
