Research Our Collections

The Ridgefield Historical Society is dedicated to collecting photos, documents, and objects that tell a story about the history of Ridgefield. Since 2002, when the collections originated, the Historical Society’s diligent volunteers have carefully preserved over 10,000 pieces of Ridgefield’s past that are stored in archival materials and placed in our climate controlled vault beneath the Scott House.

Historic Preservation

The Historic Preservation Committee has its roots in the founding of the Historical Society as the Ridgefield Preservation Trust in 1999 by saving the 18th Century David Scott House from demolition. The Historic Preservation Committee is tasked with monitoring changes to our landscape that may have the potential to undermine the cherished 300-year character of Ridgefield’s streets and neighborhoods.
