The Chatham Historical Society

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.

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

Admission is always free. Donations are appreciated.
