In Honor of Our Veterans...
This is an old event, from 2012
In conjunction with the Field of Honor which will be sitting proudly on the grounds of the Historical Society and the Town, we have mounted a small exhibit, In Honor of Our Veterans in the Boardman Store Gallery. The items included in the exhibit will be uniforms and memorabilia from our collection of Veterans from the Civil War, WWI and WWII. We also have on exhibit a special temporary loan of some very rare medals and patches that were worn by a local Vietnam Veteran, M. Sgt. Ray Crawford US Army Special Forces (Green Beret) who served 3 tours. He also generously lent us a stone sculpture he made entitled Phantom as well as his Green Beret and Jungle Bush Hat. We honor and remember all of our veterans that have served our country proudly. The exhibit will be on view from October 2 - November 13.

Roger Sherman Exhibit 2013 ...
This is an old event, from 2013
PERMANENT EXHIBIT The newly refurbished and updated Roger Sherman exhibit is the first completed project for the New Milford Historical Society and Museum’s proposed “New Milford Room,” dedicated to the history, cultural happenings and industries of the town of New Milford. Other exhibits and displays are currently in progress. Covering one short wall of the downstairs gallery, the new Roger Sherman exhibit features duplicate documents, a large diorama, paintings and a large timeline depicting the work and accomplishments of this early Connecticut Patriot. In the well-known painting of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence by John Trumbull, Roger Sherman stands prominently at the front with Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and John Hancock just as he did in life. A lithograph copy of the painting can be seen hanging to the left of the Roger Sherman exhibit accompanied by a key identifying the various members of the Continental Congress depicted in the painting and underneath both is a table with copies of the very important documents Roger Sherman helped to craft, which are available for visitors to read and study.
