Spend the afternoon with your fellow members at our first annual Thank You Party! We invite you to bring a friend (or two!) and introduce them to the Ridgefield Historical Society ‘s many offerings. At the event learn more about our genealogy services and Historic Plaque program, see a display of treasures from our state-of-the-art archive, mark your calendar for summer Sundays at the Peter Parley Schoolhouse, take a tour of the 1714 Scott House led by preservation architect David Scott, and meet Town Historian, Kay Ables. In the back yard, go back in time with the 4th Conn. Regiment as they cook and bake over an open fire, demonstrate how to clean, make cartridges for, and shoot muskets, and reenact the camp life complete with period tents depicting how soldiers and camp followers lived during the period.
Meet at Scott House (click for map), home of The Ridgefield Historical Society.
