Leffingwell House Museum

Welcome to the Leffingwell House Museum (Circa 1675), one of the finest restored examples of New England Colonial architecture which shows the architectural development common to CT.  Starting as a two room home in 1675, it evolved into a pre-Revolutionary Tavern in 1701 and became the elegant townhouse of Norwich Patriot Christopher Leffingwell by 1776. The house is filled with a fascinating assortment of pieces representative of its architectural evolution. Interpreters use displays of artifacts, dating from the founding of Norwich in 1659 through the Civil War, to evoke the lifestyle of early America. The Leffingwell House Museum is open April-Oct, Saturday, 11am-2pm. Tours are $8 per person, children 5 and under free. Tours by appointment are available, contact us [email protected]  The Joseph Carpenter Silversmith Shop will be open Saturdays 11am-3pm, Free. Both sites open April- Oct. masks are required indoors.
