After nearly three years of work, renovations are complete at the North Haven Historical Society and Museums. Located in the Cultural Center at 27 Broadway, the historical society has newly-installed hardwood floors, a fresh coat of paint, and also has added to its collection.
Volunteers hope a reopening celebration will take place this summer.
Chuck Hexter, Sue Iverson, Marisa Hexter and Ann Clark have been working hard to get the historical society back on track.
“We are always in need of volunteers, as we want to leave this place to the next generation,” Chuck Hexter said.
Help is needed with archiving, developing small exhibits and organizing artifacts. Also, the historical society is looking to bolster its social media presence.
“We always welcome people interested in local history,” said Iverson. “If people have a few hours each month, we can find something they might like to do.”
In addition to the renovations, the North Haven Historical Society was recently awarded a $5,900 grant from Connecticut Humanities, a nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This Operating Support Grant will be used to curate a newly-acquired collection of Quinnipiac People artifacts found in various locations around North Haven.
North Haven Historical Society and Museums is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 5 p.m. and by appointment.
