Leffingwell House Museum in Norwich

The Leffingwell House Museum (Circa 1675), is a fine example of New England Colonial architecture showing the architectural development common to CT. In 1675 it started as a two room home, then in 1701 evolved into a pre-Revolutionary Tavern and by 1776 became the elegant townhouse of Norwich Patriot Christopher Leffingwell. 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 Joseph Carpenter Silversmith Shop was built in 1772, when the Norwichtown Green was the social and commercial center of the town. Appreciate the original walls and the forge of the silversmith as well as displays of the businesses and craftsmen of Norwichtown.
