Each town in our Coastal Fairfield County region has a Historical Society. The societies vary in size, age, endowments, and in many other ways. The Cultural Alliance first convened 17 historical societies in our region in January 2019 – the first of six convenings to date. Subjects for discussion have included: memberships, annual appeals, capital campaigns and other fundraising, marketing, exhibitions, and more. The societies reconvened in the Spring of 2023 when they shared experiences during the COVID and post-COVID interim and began to continue their work on a number of joint projects that were started prior to the pandemic.
