The Meriden Historical Society announces its bi-annual Sunday Open House event with a special exhibit of Meriden Ephemera. The exhibit can be viewed on any Sunday in May from 11:00 AM till 3:00 PM, at the Andrews Homestead, the Society’s Showcase Museum located at 424 West Main Street, Meriden, CT (Between McDonald’s and Ben Franklin Elementary School.)
The Meriden Historical Society opens its museum to the public twice yearly, on Sundays in May and in October.
Besides its permanent collection, the May Open House features Meriden items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected to have only a short-term usefulness or popularity. Among those items are advertising cards, post cards, paper giveaways, trade cards, political campaign items, match boxes, brochures, calendars, letterheads, candy wrappers and all that was not meant to have been kept.
The Meriden Historical Society is a volunteer organization. It has been preserving Meriden’s past for future generations since 1892.
Admission to the exhibit is free. Donations are greatly appreciated.
