The Meigs–Bishop House is a historic house at 45 Wall Street in Madison, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with clapboard siding and a large central chimney. It was built in stages, the oldest one dating to c. 1690, with the addition of a leanto c. 1725 to give the house a saltbox appearance. There were further additions in the late 19th century. It is believed to be Madison's second oldest house.[2] It is currently used in the commercial operations of a tea room called the Front Parlour.[3]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
