Gordon Heublein, a food magnate, was walking in the on Talcott Mountain near Hartford, with his fiancee, and promised to build her a castle in the area. He kept his promise by building Heublein Tower as their summer house.

The building has been restored and run as an attraction by the State of Connecticut. Those who brave the long staircase walk to the top are rewarded with some wonderful views of farms and trees, especially fine in the fall.
