From the time the Puritans decided this was the place to be, New Haven has been a part of what unfolded in Connecticut and the world.
Just consider learning where the names of the city schools came from and you will begin to see this history.
However, I shamefully had not toured the Pardee Morris House until recently.
But once you go there, history unfolds. Did you know, for instance, that the British burned the original house down when they raided New Haven during the Revolutionary War?
But it was rebuilt and it is still there on Lighthouse Road.
There are friendly folks there to give tours - or you can just look around and read the materials there that explain the history of the home and its occupants. The point is, if you can, you should go.
The Pardee-Morris House is located at 325 Lighthouse Road, New Haven.

Since I work in the news business, I get a lot of press releases, including for the New Haven Museum.
Here is what they share about the house (unedited here)
