Greenwich Historical Society was founded in 1931 to preserve and interpret Greenwich history to strengthen our community’s connection to the past, to each other and to our future. The circa 1730 National Historic Landmark Bush-Holley House survived the American Revolution and became the site of Connecticut’s first American Impressionist art colony from 1890 to 1920. Its landscape and gardens are restored based on paintings, photographs, and journals original to the site’s Impressionist era. The campus also includes a nationally accredited museum, library and archives, a museum store, café, and a community education center. Greenwich Historical Society educates thousands of school children annually and connects visitors to the history of this globally influential community through exhibitions, lectures, programs, and events. It receives no town funding and relies on donations and grants to continue its work in education and preservation. Learn more at greenwichhistory.org.
