Pardee-Morris House

Join us for a fun filled summer season at historic Pardee-Morris House in 2024!

Located at 325 Lighthouse Road in New Haven, guided tours of the historic Pardee-Morris House (PMH) are available on Sundays, 12-4 p.m., during the summer season.

We offer a host of seasonal events: a Twilight Summer Concert Series, fun and informative lectures and workshops and community activities, all free of charge. For a complete list of events visit: http://newhavenmuseum.org/visit/events-calendar/ 

Listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places, the house was built around 1750 by Amos Morris. Burned by the British during their raid on New Haven in 1779, the house was rebuilt and expanded by the Morris family. In 1918, William S. Pardee, a Morris family descendant, bequeathed the property to the New Haven Colony Historical Society, today known as the New Haven Museum. PMH first opened to the public for tours on June 13, 1921.

Thanks to our 2024 supporters: WSHU Public Radio – 91.1 FM and 89.9 FM, Avangrid – UI/Lighting Up the Arts, The Howard Gilman Foundation, and Alder Salvatore E. DeCola for making another year possible!

Colonial Herb Garden

Thanks to our neighbors, Rachel Heerema and Giulia Gouge, we have a colonial herb garden that demonstrates the herbs and plants that a colonial woman would have used for cooking, medicine, household, and tea or aroma.
