About the Avery-Copp House
 
The Avery Copp House was built c. 1800 on the banks of the Thames River in Groton, Connecticut.  The house passed from generation to generation of the same family, and is a wonderful time capsule of local history.  The objects and artifacts within tell the story of life in this lovely Groton neighborhood from just after the Revolutionary, through the Victorian Era, the age of industrialization, mass immigration, the Great Depression, and the years of both World Wars.  The museum is located on three acres of terraced grounds overlooking the river with beautiful gazebos and a Carriage House that now contains our archive storage facility.  We are happy to schedule individual and group tours by request.  Please contact us!  We'd love you meet you.

Perhaps some of your friends would enjoy our events too! Please consider recommending us.
