The Avery-Copp House is located in the Groton Bank National Register Historic District. Built in the colonial style in the early 1800s and Victorianized at the turn of the last century, the house tells the story of generations of an American family that lived here for 200 years. Furnishings are original and testify to Yankee thrift, inventiveness and hard work, with household items reflecting the fruits of the family’s labor and travel. Two Victorian gazebos sit above the house on the terraced lawns overlooking the Thames River.
In addition to being open to the public Friday through Sunday, 11 AM to 3 PM on a seasonal basis, the Avery-Copp House hosts events for families and the general public and is open by appointment year round. Visit the house on the web at www.AveryCoppHouse.org
