    The Merwinsville Hotel Restoration

    The Merwinsville Hotel Restoration…
    The Merwinsville Hotel Restoration, located along the Housatonic Railroad in Gaylordsville, Connecticut, was a meal and rest stop which opened for business in 1843.

    The mission of the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration, a non-profit organization founded in 1971, is to restore one of the last standing trackside station hotels east of the Mississippi as a living museum and a social, cultural and educational center for the community.

    As you enter the Hotel today, you get a sense of what it was like 170 years ago as passengers stepped off the railroad on their way from Bridgeport, Connecticut, to summer homes in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

    If you would like to learn more about the history of the Hotel or would like to get involved with Hotel activities, please explore our site, and feel free to contact any of our committee members. They would love to hear from you.
