George Dudley Seymour State Park, located in Connecticut, is a testament to the vision of George Dudley Seymour, a successful patent attorney who used his wealth to preserve land in many areas of the state. This park, which bears his name, spans 334 acres and was once the estate of George, Henry, and Thomas Clark, who made their fortune from the Clark Cutaway Harrow Company. Today, the park protects a valuable mile of Connecticut River frontage and a significant grassland habitat along the river. It offers activities such as bird watching, hiking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and fishing. The park is home to native grass species that date from the 1600s or earlier, predating European colonization. Combined with Hurd State Park to the north, these two properties protect nearly two square miles of Connecticut River valley property.
