The Lockwood–Mathews Mansion is a Second Empire style country house, now a museum, in Norwalk, Connecticut. It was built in 1864-68 by railroad and banking magnate LeGrand Lockwood. It has been described as "one of the earliest and finest surviving Second Empire style country houses ever built in the United States." The home was used as a filming location for the 2004 remake of The "Stepford Wives."

The museum is reputed to be haunted and has hosted "Witches, Vampires & Ghost Tours" with costumed interpreters. The tours include information about Connecticut’s witch trials.
