At this time, the New Milford Historical Society will remain closed to the public for tours and research, in the interest of keeping our employees, volunteers and visitors safe.
In the meantime, we encourage you to visit our beautiful grounds and our historical secret garden in the back of the museum which is lovingly maintained by the New Milford Garden Club.
Continue to follow us on Facebook and visit our website for a new video series Got a Minute? New Milford History in 60 seconds! Photographs, Historical Essays and videos will be featured regularly.
Please be patient during these unprecedented times! The Museum Board of Trustees and staff are dedicated to still keeping history alive while we are closed.
We believe history happens every day — and history is definitely happening right now!
During these unprecedented times, the New Milford Historical Society is creating a historical archive of pandemic stories of sheltering in place, struggle, and survival. Knowing that many New Milford citizens of all ages may be creating a record of their daily lives and personal experiences in these days, the Society invites all residents to help us preserve these written reflections and images for the future.
Residents are encouraged to write down, capture in photos/videos, of their personal stories. Tell us how your life has changed, how your family has adapted to working and learning from home, and how you are coping with the stresses of life during the time of COVID-19.
Please help the New Milford Historical Society build this historical archive of pandemic stories by submitting your information on our contact page or to our email address nmhistorical
Videos, photos and stories will be uploaded and preserved in our archives for the future generations to understand what we did as a community during this historical time.
