House museum

The Yale University Art Gallery is known for its collection of American decorative arts, but the university also has a kind of open-air museum of nineteenth-century American houses—more than three dozen, all told. This one at 46 Hillhouse, which is getting a paint job this summer, was built in 1839 for Aaron Skinner. The last private house on Hillhouse to be sold to Yale, it now houses the astronomy department.
