Please join us for our next LIVE ZOOM presentation!
Torrington Historical Society is pleased to once again host the ever-engaging Nick Bellantoni for a program based on his recent book, "And So the Tomb Remained".
Nick Bellantoni has been asked to enter many historic family tombs for restoration projects and crime scene investigations.
In this presentation, he will tell the stories of five family tombs and the archaeology and forensic science behind his work.
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.
The permanent exhibit of Torrington's history is now open Thursday and Friday from 12-4 pm and on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month form 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com.
