Brief History Of The Hangar at Candlelight Farms

It was in 1941 when Jessica and Carl Dunham had acquired the land. There was no electricity during those times, and the light coming from the candle was the only thing that shines on the mountain at night. That condition gave its name “Candlelight.” 


Carl Dunham Jr., the owner’s son, dedicated his life to the property’s vision – to provide a place where guests can revel in the beauty, spirituality, and well-being. His vision to offer such a stunning place came to life in Western Connecticut. Candlelight Farms Inn is one of the most magnificent and panoramic wedding locations in Connecticut.
