The historic house, built in the colonial style in the early 1800s and Victorianized at the turn-of-the-century, tells the story of generations of an American family that lived here for 200 years. Furnishings are original and testify to Yankee thrift, inventiveness and hard work and reflect the fruits of the family’s labor and travels. Two Victorian gazebos sit above the house on the terraced lawns overlooking the Thames River.

The House is located in the Groton Bank National Register Historic District. Its mission is to celebrate, preserve, and document the historic home, its collection, and the grounds belonging to the Avery and Copp families in Groton, Connecticut. In addition to being open to the public on a seasonal basis, the house is open by appointment year round. Events for families and the general public are offered throughout the year, including the Fall Garden Party, Christmas Open House, Charles Dickens dramatic readings, tours and lectures. An annual calendar of events is available on the Avery-Copp House website
