The Wallingford Historic Preservation Trust is the owner and caretaker of the Royce House and the American Silver Museum at the Franklin Johnson Mansion. Its mission is threefold: 1. To acquire, preserve, interpret and educate the public about historic structures and culture in early Wallingford. 2. To feature the 1840-1980 period of silver manufacturing in Wallingford and Meriden. 3. To support a more fully accurate portrayal for all, WHPT commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, equitable nation.
In Spring 2022, they will be hosting a Witness Stones Project to explore the local history of slavery.
