About Us

Welcome to the Norwich Historical Society. Our mission is to foster a greater sense of place and community by presenting and sharing its collections and stories from the past. The Society maintains the historic 1807 Lewis House in the heart of Norwich’s historic downtown along with an extensive collection of artifacts, photos, and archives relating to the town’s history. Annual exhibits are mounted in the three spacious exhibit rooms on the first floor, and other special events are held at the Historical Society throughout the year. We have an active educational program with the Marion Cross School that brings elementary school students to the Lewis House to learn about more about history. Join us for walking tours of Norwich in the summer and family history workshops in the winter.
