A Not For Profit Organization

Established in 1963, The Chatham Historical Society is a private, not-for-profit organization with the purpose of preserving East Hampton’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.

We hope you enjoy this website experience and we look forward to keeping you informed about great ways to connect to the history of East Hampton, Cobalt and Middle Haddam, CT.

The Chatham Historical Society Museum and School House both located at 6 Bevin Blvd in the Town of East Hampton, Connecticut and are open to the public the first Sunday of each month from 2-4pm

Admission is always free. Donations are appreciated.

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
