Built by Hezekiah Reynolds in 1786,the Reynolds-Beers House was acquired by the town of North Branford in 1997 and is now maintained and operated as a museum and learning center for local history by the Totoket Historical Society.

The gambrel-roofed house, with its three dormers, two sided chimneys, four comer fireplaces and double folding front doors is unique in North Branford. The twoells on the back or east side were added at different times during the 19th century. The south ell has Greek revival style elements and the north ell houses the kitchen, pantry and features an interior dug well.

Many of the interior features are original, particularly the ornate paneling which is unusual in a house this size.
