About UsThe Chatham Historical Society
The Chatham Historical Society is a private, not-for-profit museum and school house founded in 1963. Our Mission is to preserve, promote and share knowledge about our community’s extraordinarily rich but not always evident history.
We invite all East Hampton, CT residents to share their family history and personal stories with us. A Member of the Historical Society can come to a person’s residence or set up a meeting at our Museum, Public Library or Senior Center. If you’d like to be interviewed by The Chatham Historical Society or know someone that is willing, please contact us!

Our Event Calendar features an annual Antique Appraisal Day, a biennial Historic House Tour, an annual Town-wide Tag Sale, programs for local elementary school children, Monthly Speakers and Guest Authors, History Walks around town, and an annual Fall Festival to name a few.
Our website intends to provide information to the public about upcoming East Hampton Events, programs and the changing content of exhibits on display in the Society’s 1840 one- room school house and newly opened museum.
