Ridgefield Historical Society Seeks Volunteers, Board Members

Founded just 20 years ago, the Ridgefield Historical Society has made a big impact in a short time. We are now seeking new board members and volunteers who wish to join us as we continue to steward Ridgefield’s magnificent history and heritage.

The Ridgefield Historical Society has seen renewed activity and enthusiasm among residents in the past year as the Covid-19 pandemic has eased and the town recently celebrated a spectacular Battle of Ridgefield reenactment weekend.

The Society is now seeking new board members and volunteers who wish to engage with the community and join us as we continue to be a steward of Ridgefield’s magnificent history, right up to present times. Among the committees we are looking to augment are Finance, Programming, Fundraising, and Architectural Archives. The Ridgefield Historical Society has much to share, and we are looking for fresh minds to join us for the next leg, to learn about the history and heritage of our town and preserve our future. 

The Society is well into its 20th anniversary year and with an energetic board and gracious volunteers, the organization has come a long way in a short time. Enthusiastic about the outcome of the recently completed two-year National Park Service grant for new research on The Battle of Ridgefield, and just receiving state grants for a town wide Historic Resources Survey, the organization continues to embark on new grant opportunities and prepare new program offerings. Our board consists of a broad coalition of professionals who each bring expertise and passion to different aspects of the Society’s activities.

If you, or someone you know is seeking a way to give back to this great town — while learning and having fun — please contact us at 203-438-5821 or info@ridgefieldhistoricalsociety.org.
