New Hartford, CT Historical Society

Welcome to the New Hartford, CT Historical Society.

We Are Still HERE! 15th Annual Wine Tasting!
Our 15th Annual Wine Tasting will be held on September 6th, 2019 at Ski Sundown in New Hartford from 6-9 pm. Tickets will be $30 and are available at the door as always. As always there will be good food, good wine, and great conversations! Enjoy the beginning of fall!

We are incredibly grateful to your support. We are currently located at 529 Main Street in New Hartford and are open most Wednesdays from 7-9pm. Our focus over the last year has been in digitizing certain collections for ease of access and updating our accession lists and artifact inventory. This will aid both research and our ability to give presentations in the future.

As the main fundraising event of the year for the society, this evening has become the kick-off event for the winter season in New Hartford, with many people coming back into town after the summer away and many preparing to leave the Northeast for warmer climates.  Please be patrons to our supporters and let them know you heard of them through NHHS.  Thank you for your support!
