Connecticut Historical Society

A private, nonprofit, educational organization established in 1825, the Connecticut Historical Society is the state’s official historical society and one of the oldest in the nation. Located at One Elizabeth Street in Hartford, the CHS houses a museum, library, and the Edgar F. Waterman Research Center that are open to the public and funded by private contributions. The CHS’s collection includes more than 4 million manuscripts, graphics, books, artifacts, and other historical materials accessible at our campus and on loan at other organizations.

[Editors' Note:  While the Native Northeast Portal contains over 250 documents from the Connecticut Historical Society's collections, providing a listing of them together under a CHS heading is a new feature initiated during the 2021-2023 NEH Grant period.  As time permits, we will continue to backfill this page.]
