"Knowing Our Past, Guides Our Future"
Preserving History in the Connecticut Town with THE MOST COLONIAL HOMES

MISSION:
Our objective is to educate through the preservation and promotion of Glastonbury's extraordinary historical legacy by preserving, owning, maintaining and operating multiple historic properties, holding public events, providing education and other services, publishing regular newsletters and columns in the Citizen, holding membership events, and consistently updating and improving exhibits and facilities. Support for our work comes primarily from members, business sponsors, foundations and the State and Town.
JOIN TODAY!
