The Stratford Historical Society has three buildings on site. The Captain David Judson House was built by Captain David Judson on the site of his great-grandfather’s 1639 stone house. It is a fine example of Georgian architecture and is furnished with period pieces of Stratford origin.

The recently renovated Catharine Bunnell Mitchell Museum shows exhibits of Stratford history. An extensive genealogy and history library on the lower level is available for research.

The Beach Family Carriage house was built around c. 1885 by the Beach Family of Elm Street, Stratford. Currently closed to the public.
