The Stone House is a building with a lot of history and character. If its walls could talk you'd hear wonderful stories of family celebrations and community fun, some almost a century old. From the time it was built in 1925 the building has hosted many types of social gatherings.
The Stone House could be the location for your next event!
The large stone and wood house is available for all kinds of events including wedding receptions, parties, corporate celebrations, and meetings. With a hardwood floor banquet area, an elevated stage with drapes, a large full kitchen, bathrooms and lots of parking, you have the ability to host a stress-free event right in the midst of the natural beauty of woodsy North Stamford.
There have been many renovations over the years but the same, simple community house-feel remains. Event hosts have a blank canvas to work with and it allows many options for decorating. The building remains a lively hub for meetings, parties, social events, community organizations, performing arts programs, and ongoing church events.
Construction on the building began on November 28, 1925. It was financed by Henry Lockwood, in memory of his wife Helen M. Davenport Lockwood, and Edward E.T. Howes was the architect. Mr. Lockwood died before the building was completed, so his son, Judge Charles Davenport Lockwood, completed the building in memory of both parents. The building was a gift to the North Stamford Congregational Church and it stands on the site of the North Stamford one-room schoolhouse that was moved to the rear of the church, and now serves as the church's Guild House.
