The Pardee-Morris House is closed until the 2020 season. Thank you for another great summer of music, art & community.

Located at 325 Lighthouse Road in the Morris Cove neighborhood of New Haven.

The historic Pardee-Morris House (PMH)—viewed as the “summer home” of the New Haven Museum—offers seasonal events: music ranging from jazz and blues to big band swing, neighborhood walks, and insightful presentations and workshops, almost all free of charge. PMH is also open for guided tours on Sundays during the summer season.

Listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places, the PMH 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 the New Haven Museum.

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.
