3. New Milford Historical Society... A Treasure Trove of History

The New Milford Historical Society, on the Green, is a complex of 4 buildings: the Knapp House c. 1800, attached to the main gallery; The Litchfield County First Bank building, c. 1820; and the Boardman Store, 1796. In the Knapp House you will find wide floor boards, and an 18th century cooking hearth where people prepared dinner without modern conveniences, a Victorian dining room and parlor, as well as a collection of antique toys.

The adjoining Gallery contains the Society's permanent collection of portraits by Ralph Earl, Richard Jennys, and paintings by Woldemar Neufeld as well as displays of New Milford pottery, pewter, period furniture, tools, textiles, decorative arts and a series of changing exhibits.
