Description

The Norwalk Historical Society was incorporated in 1899 with the purpose of promoting and encouraging historical research in Norwalk. That vision is kept alive today with the re-establishment of the NHS in 1949 and the continued focus on “the research, preservation, and promotion of interest in the history of Norwalk.” Members of the NHS bring Norwalk’s history to the public eye through contributions, donations, and volunteer time in a variety of NHS sponsored activities.

Activities include: Award-winning exhibits like The Firelands: Retribution for the Burning of Norwalk and Angry Waters: The Norwalk Flood of 1955.

Our Building Plaque Program, which provides recognition and insight into architectural treasures that stand in our community.

The Little Red Schoolhouse Program that brings to Norwalk’s 3rd graders the opportunity to learn about life in early Norwalk.

Events, such as our Colonial Harvest Festival (formerly Taste of Thanksgiving) and the 4th of July Bell Ringing Ceremony

Publications, including the 2005 Commemorative Edition of the Mark Flood Disaster Pictorial and the updating of our chronicle Norwalk: Being an historical account of that Connecticut town.

Preservation for important Norwalk artifacts such as the “Norwalk, feb’y the 13, 1854” slipware pie plate.
