The Solomon Goffe House is located on North Colony Street in Meriden, Connecticut, United States. It was built in 1711, and is the oldest remaining building in the city of Meriden. It is a traditional gambrel style roof.
One of the highlights of the landscaping is its traditional herb garden, which was designed after examples of typical 18th century herb gardens in the area.
The house is currently a museum. There are tours the first Sunday of the month from April to November 1:30pm to 4:30pm. Each month has a different theme.
The Archaeology Society of Connecticut has done some digs on the property and found a number of objects, including an axe blade.
