Andrews Homestead (1760)

Visitors to the homestead will see early construction details. The great fireplace with its deep Dutch ovens in the keeping room, the paneling surrounding the three remaining fireplaces, the huge exposed field stone chimney wall in the entrance hall, the hiding closet, as well as the wide floor boards, hardware are all original. The furnishings are donations from local families.

Meriden’s Industrial past comes to life in the many display cases containing numerous products made here, and now collected all over the world. A large doll and toy collection fills cases in an upstairs nursery.
