The Tower is Closed for the Season
The tower is closed for the season, but the park remains open for hikers. The Friends of Heublein Tower wish to express their gratitude to those who have supported our restoration efforts this year. Next year we will be back at work, continuing to make the tower experience larger and more enjoyable for the residents of Connecticut, and our visitors from around the world.

About the Heublein Tower
The Heublein Tower is historically significant as the country retreat of Gilbert F. Heublein (1850-1937) co-founder of G.F Heublein and Brothers, which later became Heublein Inc., an international food and beverage importing firm. The Tower stands atop the highest point (875 feet) of Talcott Mountain, in Simsbury Connecticut and commands a 360 degree view of the central portion of the state. It is now owned by the state of Connecticut and is part of Talcott Mountain State Park, which covers more than 500 acres in Avon, Bloomfield and Simsbury.
Visitors who walk up the 120 steps to the observation room at the top of the Tower are rewarded with an unparalleled view of the Farmington Valley, West Hartford and the Hartford skyline.
