ConnTours: Self-Guided Tour of Ridgefield
ConnTours is an app developed by Connecticut Humanities that serves as a mobile-friendly tour guide to historic and cultural sites throughout Connecticut. ConnTours allows you to explore unique sites at your own pace and on your own schedule.
The Historical Society has been selected to pilot the app’s first town-based tours of Ridgefield! Walking tours currently available:
● Revolutionary War
● The Butcher, Baker, & Candlestick Maker
● Main Street Architecture (Coming Soon)
Funding for ConnTours was provided with the support of Connecticut Humanities, a nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which funds, creates, and collaborates on hundreds of cultural programs across Connecticut each year.

The Ridgefield Arts Council has joined other towns in CT, the US, and Europe in implementing the Otocast app. Geared towards places with an art, music, dance, theatre, cultural and historic focus, Otocast facilitates discovery of recommended “points of interest” in any town and encourages exploration of the surrounding areas.
The Ridgefield Historical Society is featured along with other arts and cultural organizations. “The goal is to create a one stop mobile listing for all things cultural in Ridgefield,” said Jennifer DiLaura of the Ridgefield Arts Council.
