The Naugatuck Historical Society is located in the historic Railroad Station. Parking is free and plentiful and we are located right on the Metro North Line.


The Mission of the Naugatuck Historical Society is to bring together those people interested in the history of Naugatuck; to discover and collect any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of the area; to endeavor to provide for the preservation of items of historic significance; to cooperate with officials in insuring the preservation of records and archives of the town; and to disseminate historical information and attempt to arouse interest in the past.


The Naugatuck Historical Society was founded in 1959, and is a membership supported nonprofit organization bringing together people who are interested in history, and especially in the history of Naugatuck, Connecticut, and environs.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
