Noah Webster, the famous lexicographer, was born here in 1758. The house stands on South Main Street in West Hartford (then known as the West Division of Hartford), where Noah Webster grew up on his family’s farm. He would later produce the influential Blue-Backed speller in 1783 and his first dictionary in 1806. The house is a museum open to the public and also houses the West Hartford Historical Society.
