The Greenwich Historical Society represents Greenwich at its core—a town as firmly rooted in our nation’s past as it is in shaping its future; home to economic leaders from early farmers to Gilded Age barons, local merchants to global business trailblazers; committed to the arts—as the cradle of American Impressionism and the inspiration for artists, writers, designers, and architects. With its proximity to the rocky coastline and rolling hills, Greenwich is a New England village and New York suburb; global and local in its interests, perspectives, and influence.
Bring the whole family for a festive day on the beautiful Historical Society grounds to celebrate the Historic Cos Cob Art Colony, inspired by our current exhibition. Sing and dance with the Trummytones, compete in our annual scarecrow-building competition, paint en plein air like the Impressionists, and help create a community masterpiece. The Greenwich Historical Society welcomes donations of creative scarecrow-making clothes and accessories! Deliver to the lobby by October 8! Click here for more information.
