Celebrating 76 years... 1944-2020
The Torrington Historical Society builds a sense of community and a foundation for the future through the preservation and understanding of our shared past.
We do this primarily through the preservation of the Hotchkiss-Fyler estate, located at 192 Main Street in downtown Torrington, CT. The estate consists of the John H. Thompson Memorial Research Library, the Hotchkiss-Fyler House Museum and the Torrington History Museum as well as preserving the John Brown Birthplace site.
