“Visiting the Connecticut Historical Society museum, library, and the Edgar F. Waterman Research Center is a great way to learn more about Connecticut and its history, people, and culture. The Society, established in 1825, is located in a lovely 1928 Colonial Revival building that was formerly a luxury home. It now contains over 4 million diverse items in the areas of textiles, furniture, clothing, manuscripts, diaries, prints, photos, tavern signs, children’s books, and various tools. There are several permanent exhibitions on display, and the most important one is a comprehensive overview of more than 400 years of the history of Connecticut. The exhibition displays over 500 historic images”
