APRIL 2018

APRIL PROGRAM: UP WEST MAIN AND DOWN MEMORY LANE – Digitized Images of West Main Street, Meriden in 1960 Thursday, April 12th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at the Meriden Public Library, 105 Miller Street, Meriden, CT.

Please join us for a nostalgic photographic “walk” along West Main Street Meriden as it was photographed 58 years ago, back in 1960.

Our newest PowerPoint slide presentation captures the store fronts along the north (odd numbers) side of West Main Street starting at Colony Street and ending at 109 W. Main.

The program is free and open to both members and the public.   Refreshments will be served.



A spring fund raiser tea will be held on May 5th from 1:00-3:00 at the Andrew’s Homestead, 424 West Main St, Meriden, CT.

The Homestead’s display rooms will be set for a traditional afternoon tea featuring a variety of tea sandwiches, scones, assorted desserts and teas, as well as a door prize and table favors.

On display will be selected tea and coffee sets from the Historical Society’s International Silver collection. The tea will open the Homestead’s special May exhibit.

The price of tickets is $22.

Space is limited so we urge you to make your reservations early.

Reservations can be made by calling: 203-440-3686



Every Sunday in May 11:00 – 3:00 at the Andrews Homestead, 424 W. Main St. Meriden CT, sharing a parking lot with the Benjamin Franklin School.

Our May exhibit will be in conjunction with the Spring Tea Party being held on Saturday May 5th. The following day, May 6th will be the start of the Sunday exhibits that will feature a selection of items made by Meriden companies, related to the serving of tea.

Best of all, changes have been happening inside the Homestead. We have been going through our inventory and have discovered some impressive items that have been stored away for much too long. We’re really excited about showing off our restocked and reorganized displays for this exhibit.

If you are a new member this year, please mention that when you come to the exhibit. We have a special gift for you. Come and enjoy.
