Welcome to the Ridgefield Historical Society!

Located in the 1714 Scott House, the Ridgefield Historical Society brings to life the stories of Ridgefield’s past: its people, the architecture and land use, and the changing patterns of life and trade. Our collection of documents, records, and photographs gives insight into the town’s character developed over the centuries.

The last sixteen years have been exciting ones for the Society and we continue to grow as an active member of the community. Take a look at our calendar of events, explore our collections, attend an open house at the Peter Parley Schoolhouse, and much more. Our work is entirely made possible by our members, donors, and volunteers. Join us and become a supporter of Ridgefield’s history.
