CURATOR’S CHOICE EXHIBIT
SUNDAYS 11-3 p.m.
AT THE ANDREWS HOMESTEAD IN MAY
Our May exhibit will be a chance for our curator Allen Weathers to showcase a fantastic collection of items from his varied interests.We are always amazed and appreciative of his broad knowledge not only of Meriden itself, but of ordinary things used in Meriden over the years. Come to the Andrews Homestead any Sunday during May from 11am to 3pm and be ready for a “treat”.
The Andrews Homestead, 424 West Main Street, is one of the oldest homes in Meriden. Chock full of items from Meriden’s past, it is open to the public every Sunday in May and October from 11am-3pm. Young and old (and in-between) are welcome to stop in!
