Our Mission

The New Milford Historical Society & Museum collects, preserves and interprets objects and information of historical merit pertaining to the backgrounds of individuals and their way of life and customs in the greater New Milford area. It serves the residents and visitors to New Milford as a source of reliable information and seeks to stimulate interest in the culture and history of New Milford. It promotes educational, cultural and civic activities of groups, organizations and Town sponsored programs; this participation to be related to the material holdings of the Society.

The Society's goals are to provide education, historical and cultural activities for the public, and to maintain our artifacts and documents in an efficient and professional manner so that the historic past of our town is available for present and future generations. We have a close link with the local schools and provide tours for students and adult groups.

The Society is actively working to bring the past to the present and preserve it for the future. The Board of Trustees, Curator and many volunteers work together to mount special exhibits, provide historical research and preserve items from our past. 

The New Milford Historical Society & Museum has both permanent and temporary exhibits on view at the Society, located just north of the historic and scenic New Milford Green at N° 6, Aspetuck Avenue.

Our hours are Tuesday - Friday from 12:00 - 3:00, Saturday 11-2, closed Sunday, and by appointment. (Click here to request yours, or call (860) 354-3069).
Winter is also the season of bad and unpredictable weather in New England. In case of inclement weather, please plan on calling the museum to confirm we are open.
