Preserving East Hampton History
Established in 1963, The Chatham Historical Society is a private, not-for-profit organization with the purpose of preserving East Hampton Connecticut’s History. We believe that preserving historic places and events provides an essential link to our past, furthermore reminding us of who we are and where we came from.
The Chatham Historical Society Museum and School House are open to the public the first Sunday of each month from 2-4pm
Admission is always free. Donation are appreciated.
