New Haven's Pardee-Morris House Opens for Summer June 7

Margaret Anne Tockarshewsky
NEW HAVEN -  The historic Pardee-Morris House—"one of the oldest surviving historic structures in Connecticut" opens for the summer at noon June 7, according to a release.
 
"The day’s activities will include a flag-raising ceremony - complete with musket firing, the dulcet tones of 'Just Four Friends,' from the Connecticut Yankee Chorus; a dazzling art exhibit of works by Nathan Hale School students; guided tours of the house; colonial games; and arts and crafts," the release said.
 
All events are free and last until 4 p.m., at 325 Lighthouse Road.
 
The flag will be raised on days when the historic site is open for concerts, lectures, tours and exhibits, all free of charge. The Pardee-Morris House will be open for tours on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m., through August 30, the release said.
 
Also in the release:

The Museum thanks the East Shore Management Team; Knights of Columbus, Rodrigo Council #44; The Amity Charitable Trust; Frank Pinto and Rosemary Spring, and the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of Connecticut for supporting the 2015 summer season.
 
The Pardee-Morris House dates from about 1780, and is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places. Built by Amos Morris around 1750, the house was burned by the British during their raid on New Haven in 1779, and rebuilt and expanded by the Morris family. In 1918, William Pardee, a descendant of the Morris family, willed the property to the New Haven Colony Historical Society, today the New Haven Museum.
