New Hartford, CT Historical Society


David NH History Flyer

We are still here!

In the past couple of years, the NHHS has transformed our board! We now have a number of new board members who have new energy and focus on our mission statement; we are still striving to keep history alive in New Hartford!

We have a new home at 529 Main St. New Hartford, CT (the Corner House) and we are working on setting up our new space so we can open with regular weekly hours.

Mission Statement:

To provide research services and to help preserve, interpret, and celebrate the history of New Hartford, CT.  To encourage historical education, exploration, appreciation and the thoughtful utilization of our past to add value to New Hartford’s diverse community.  We seek to embrace the history of this place spanning from the earliest Native Americans to the rural farms, factories, merchants, artist and all who have called this place home, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
