Current Exhibits

Made in Cornwall
June 16 – October 29, 2017

Come explore Cornwall as a working community from its founding through the mid 20th century. The exhibit will also consider how rural communities responded to the close of most of the region’s industrial enterprises at the beginning of the 20th century. Visitors will be encouraged to engage their creativity and consider the concept of industry, as it exists in rural communities throughout the exhibit via interactive stations. Discover little known facts about Cornwall’s labor history, and learn what is being done today to promote future industry within Cornwall’s community.

The exhibit will be open June 16th through October 29th, Saturdays 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Sundays 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm, and holiday Mondays 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

The exhibit and related programs have been generously funded by the Margaret C. Tupper Fund through The Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut, National Iron Bank, and Torrington Savings Bank.

The Cornwall Historical Society is located at 7 Pine Street in Cornwall, CT. Admission is free, although donations are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you
