New Canaan Historical Society & Museums

New Canaan Historical Society & Museums

Fulfilling its mission, the society brings together the historical artifacts, events, and family genealogies of the town. The museums preserve and display collections, relics, and curiosities of New Canaan's past. With education as our primary focus, the society offers historical and genealogical research and publications in its library as well as numerous educational programs. The society also displays both permanent and changing historical exhibits.

We hope you enjoy our work.
