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.
The permanent exhibit of Torrington's history will re-open in mid April. Only one
family or social bubble will be admitted at any given time. Hours will be Thursday through Saturday from 12-4 pm. Covid-19 protocols apply. You can reserve your exclusive one hour time slot by calling 860-482-8260 or by email through email@example.com. For the safety of our patrons and staff, the
Hotchkiss-Fyler House Museum, and the library & archives will be closed to the
public until further notice. Please stay safe and well. Please send you research
inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The museum staff can also be reached by email email@example.com
