The Andrews Homestead has a magnificent new roof and shiny new gutters thanks to the City of Meriden. The Homestead sign, damaged last winter, has been replaced thanks to a generous grant from the CUNO Foundation. The volunteers of the Meriden Historical Society have put together another interesting exhibit featuring lesser known manufacturing companies and items made here, in Meriden. Come, enjoy and reminisce. Admission is free, donations are always welcome.
