The Leffingwell House Museum is owned and operated by the Society of the Founders of Norwich, CT. The Leffingwell House Museum (circa 1675) is one of the finest restored examples of New England Colonial architecture.

Visitors to this living museum catch a glimpse of early 17th-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. Using displays of historic artifacts dating from the founding of Norwich in 1659 through the Civil War, interpreters evoke the independent spirit and lifestyle of early America.
