About Us

The North Haven Historical Society is a non-profit organization established in 1957. It is a volunteer based organization actively engaged with the community to preserve historical structures, artifacts, and documents related to the Town of North Haven.

Our headquarters is located in the Cultural Center at 27 Broadway, North Haven, Connecticut 06473.  We are open September to June on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 – 6 PM; we will be closed during July and August while improvements are being made to the building.  Visit us soon!
On Thursday, April 10 2014 at our Annual Business Meeting, the North Haven Historical Society welcomed a new president, Pat Buonpane.  Pat has been an active volunteer for several years; she is the Narrator for our popular Trolley Tour, and a participant in many other Historical Society projects.   We congratulate her and welcome her to the Board!  Below please find the minutes of the meeting:
