Welcome to Glastonbury's extraordinary historical legacy

Our objective is to educate through the preservation and promotion of Glastonbury's extraordinary historical legacy by preserving, owning, maintaining and operating multiple historic properties, holding public events, providing education and other services, publishing regular newsletters and columns in the Citizen, holding membership events, and consistently updating and improving exhibits and facilities. 

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.

Throughout this website, you can learn a lot about Glastonbury's history, see the schedule of our exciting events, and look at examples of the merchandise we have in our museum store. 

We are the Connecticut town with the largest inventory of Colonial homes
