Due to current guidance from the Health Department and in the interest of protecting the high-risk populations we serve and the
high-risk populations who volunteer for us, the New Milford Historical Society & Museum is canceling all programs, historic house tours, exhibition viewings until further notice. We are also closed to all researchers.
Our interest is to continue serving our community while maintaining the safety and health of our staff, volunteers, and public.
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.
