The Perry House

If you regularly drive down West Broad Street to I-95 you’ve likely seen a transformation taking place at the last property on the right, Perry House. Externally the house has changed from a blue to historic yellow and internally there has been significant restoration to accommodate a Museum with educational programming, special occasion rentals, community events and a Visitors’ Center.

The goal of Perry House is to be a multi-use building, bringing the 17th century together with the 21st century.

Perry House will be offering programming about Stratford and the surrounding area, including Colonial, Native American and African American open hearth cooking, classes, historical story-telling about Stratford’s Legend and Lore. There will be children’s hands-on Colonial and Victorian crafting and much more. Perry House will be a home for special events in Town such as Doll Shows, Walking tours, Antique Appraisal Workshops and other creative programs too numerous to list.

The public can rent the facility for special events including wedding, corporate functions and meetings, significant birthdays and anniversaries. Children’s programs are being planned that will inspire young people in the study of history and why it is vital in understanding what forces shaped Stratford, the county and our culture and what we can learn from the past to expand our understanding of the present.

The Visitors’ Center will be a place to learn about places of interest, the planned Greenway, dining, hiking, biking trails, antiquing and shopping. It is unique in that it is the only one along I-95 between Norwalk and New Haven with set hours. This historic room with its interesting old fireplace will not only be a place for tourists to stop, but will provide a new home for the Stratford Chamber of Commerce.
