Description

The Leffingwell House Museum, one of the finest restored examples of New England Colonial architecture and home of revolutionary patriot, merchant, and industrialist Christopher Leffingwell. Visitors to this living museum catch a glimpse of early 18th century life. By the mid 18th century what was built as a simple two room house in 1675 had evolved into an elegant home for one of Connecticut's most famous patriots. The house is filled with a fascinating assortment of pieces from each generation.

History

The Society formed in 1901 acquired the Leffingwell house in 1960 when it was saved and moved from the right of way of Rte 2 in Norwich. The house was built in 1675 and restored in 1960.
