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.

When we look for a great way to get rid of old furniture, old equipment, household and other items, we turn first to Mecanica Estate Sales. An "estate sale", simply put, is a sale done for a client who needs to liquidate merchandise!
