The Hezekiah Chaffee House is a historic house museum on Meadow Lane in Windsor, Connecticut. It is a large two-story brick structure, built c. 1765 for Dr. Hezekiah Chaffee.[2] The main block is extended by gambrel-roofed extensions, which may have been built at the same time.[3] The museum is run by the Windsor Historical Society and is open year-round, Wednesday - Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972,[1] and is a contributing property to the Palisado Avenue Historic District, listed in 1987.
