Hoyt-Barnum House reopens for public tours

June 29 @ 11:00 am - November 18 @ 4:00 pm

Come visit the Hoyt-Barnum House, a historic house museum, in its new location at 1508 High Ridge Road.  It was relocated in November of 2016 to increase its accessibility to the public and to allow for the construction of a new Stamford Police Headquarters downtown.  Originally built in 1699 by Samuel Hait (or Hoyt), this is the oldest authentic residence in Stamford.  The house contains artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as reproduction items that you can touch!  An introductory video, an audio tour and informative signage will whisk you away to old Stamford and a self-guided visit.

Tours are available Thursday and Friday at 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30 and on Saturdays at 11, 12, 1:30 and 2:30.  You may also make an appointment to see the house outside of our regular hours.  Groups of more than 10 people should be booked in advance.  Tickets are $5/person and include an audio guide. Children under 12 are free with a paying adult.  Children must be supervised at all times.
