Hello, it’s nice to meet you

We’d Love To Have You Involved

What They’re Saying

Before taking this class I never would have thought of Stonington to be this rich in history. I barely even knew where the Boro was, let alone know the battles and people who impacted our town as much as they did. Now I’m leaving this class truly recognising how amazing this town I live in is.

Stonington High School Student

My husband and I enjoy seeking out lighthouses and this was a really nice one to find. After climbing the 29 circular steps and a short ladder to reach the top of the tower, you will have a beautiful panoramic view overlooking the harbor and three states.

Lighthouse Visitor

Free access to this museum with paid admission to nearby Lighthouse museum. Had never heard of or known the place existed. Very interesting history of prominent local family. Explorer of Antartica. Well maintained house with period artifacts. Very thorough tour and extremely knowledgable guide. Nice portraits on display - family history in pictures. Worth the stop and history lesson.

Visitor to the Captain Palmer House

Because of my interest in history and art history, I love the older collections, and I love the sense of discovery that old books and manuscripts provide.
