AT THE ANDREWS HOMESTEAD:
MADE IN MERIDEN – THE UNIQUE AND UNUSUAL YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER KNOWN OF. Every Sunday in May 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.
Our volunteers have done it again – They have mounted a collection of lesser known items manufactured in Meriden. These items reflect familiar and obscure Meriden manufacturing companies and some of their both familiar and, now obscure products. We’d love to see you at the Homestead and hear you exclaim: “This was made in Meriden?!”
Admission is free – donations are always appreciated.
Visitors who donate $10.00 or more at the opening day of the exhibit will receive, while supply lasts, a free ticket to the May 7th Nest Egg Auctions First Historical Societies Appraisal Event, good for an appraisal of 2 items.
