June 18  & September 17

8:00am – 1:00pm

We have scheduled 2 tag sale fund raising events this year. The first will be held on Saturday, June 18 and the second on Saturday September 17, with a rain date of the Saturday following each originally scheduled date. The sales will be held at the Society’s Bernice Morehouse Research Center’s parking lot, located at 1090 Hanover Ave.  in South Meriden. (click here for directions)

Members and non-members are welcome to set up at the sale. The cost is a $15.00 donation to the Society per set-up ($10.00 for members).

As in past years, the Meriden Historical Society will set up its own booth in the shed.  Support your Meriden Historical Society. Come set up or come shop. We hope to see you there.



The Meriden Historical Society Inc. is a membership-supported, non-profit organization uniting those who are interested in the history of Meriden, Connecticut.

We operate two buildings – the Bernice C. Morehouse Research Center (left) located at 1090 Hanover Avenue, South Meriden, and the Andrews Homestead (right), 424 West Main Street, Meriden. (click on the images below for map and directions)
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.
