For nearly 130 years, the New Canaan Museum & Historical Society has collected, documented and preserved the town’s past. On the main campus at 13 Oenoke Ridge are six of the Society’s museums: The Town House (1825), the Cody Drug Store Replica (1845), The Hanford-Silliman House (1764), The Tool Museum and Print shop (1970-71), The Rock School House (1799) and The John Rogers Studio (1878), which is on the National Registry of Historic Places. Off campus, there are three additional historic buildings: The Little Red School House (1865), The Gores Pavilion (1960, restored 2011) and, most recently, Selleck’s Corner Chapel (1851).

In addition, the Society has an extensive collection of vintage clothing, maps, paintings and relics. These collections are curated and exhibited in the galleries of the Town House throughout the year. There is also a research library of approximately 4500 titles, as well as manuscripts, deeds, newspapers, and photographs dating back to the 1700s.

The New Canaan Museum & Historical Society is open Tuesday- Friday, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm, and Saturday 9:30 am - 12:30 pm. For more information visit www.nchistory.org or call (203) 966-1776.
