The long-deceased former inhabitants of the historic Andrews Homestead in Meriden are said to still roam its rooms.

The Meriden Historical Society invited a Connecticut-based paranormal group to do an investigation on a recent evening, to see if they could capture any evidence of a haunting.

The homestead, on West Main Street, is now a society museum. The red, salt-box style house was built around 1760 by Samuel Andrews III.

“We are trying to communicate with the Andrews family, who had been involved with this property since before the Revolutionary War,” said Adam Shefts, founder and director of the Northeast Paranormal Investigations Society. “We are going to try to communicate with any former inhabitants, and see if we can capture any evidence to correlate with the history of this home.”

Peter Slavinski, president of the Meriden Historical Society, said he has had one personal unexplained experience in the house, which is one of the oldest in Meriden. About a year ago, Slavinski walked into a room where lamps are on display, and a paper describing the exhibit flew across the room, but all the windows and doors were closed, Slavinski said.

According to Slavinski, another paranormal investigation team and a medium visited about a year ago too. Slavinski said the prior group captured unexplained voices on tape in response to questions. A young girl who used to live there reportedly comes to play with the doll collection.
