Take a guided tour and step into Windsor’s past as you cross the threshold of one of our two historic homes.  Our houses are open year round.


Chaffee House     c. 1767

Walk across the historic Palisado Green to Hezekiah Chaffee’s impressive brick mansion house.  Explore the work of a pre-revolutionary doctor (and the life of his patients) in this rare 18th-century doctor’s office where historic medical instruments are on view.  Learn how the Chaffee family lived and how this house served the Chaffee School for Girls in the 20th century.  This house has steps and thresholds.


The Windsor Historical Society maintains and operates the Chaffee House as a house museum under an agreement with the Town of Windsor.
