Supported by its volunteers, the Meriden Historical Society operates at two locations

The Meriden Historical Society’s Museum & History Center is our main office and research center. Located at 39-41 West Main Street, in the heart of Downtown Meriden. This historic building’s size and central location allows us to expand our public programs, exhibit more of our collections, welcome more researchers and visitors, and better tell the story of our community!

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 for special programs and events, and by appointment. Young and old (and in-between) are welcome! 

We share a parking lot with the Benjamin Franklin elementary school. You may enter the parking lot through the do-not-enter entrance as long as it is not during school opening or dismissal time.

To set up a visit, please call our main office number: 203-639-1913.
