1090 Hanover Avenue, South Meriden, CT

 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 11:00-3:00 pm.  Young and old (and in-between) are welcome to stop in! (for a virtual tour, scroll down and watch the video).

The Bernice C. Morehouse Research Center is open every Wednesday from 1:30 – 4:00 pm.  Admission is free – donations are appreciated.

We’d like to thank the CUNO Foundation for its generous grant that paid for the repair of the leaky roof at the Research Center.
