Welcome to Glastonbury's extraordinary historical legacy
The Historical Society of Glastonbury shall promote community activity and interest in Glastonbury’s heritage through publications, exhibits and programs and shall acquire, maintain and preserve historical properties and materials for education and research.
Support for our work comes primarily from members, business sponsors, foundations and the State and Town.
We maintain historical properties, operate a museum and hold educational and promotional events. We continuously accept new members.
