There are several ways to contribute to the ongoing mission of the New London Historical Society:
① Become a member
Membership is open to all. Your annual membership contribution is tax-deductible. Member benefits include newsletters and discounted admission for tours, dessert socials and other events. Return a membership form by mail.
Thank you for your membership support.
▶ JOIN OR RENEW now by downloading our membership form.
② Volunteer time
The society has no paid staff. Without volunteers, the New London Historical Society would not operate. Volunteers maintain our buildings, care for our collections, and host our programs. A few specific examples...
· The “Tuesday Gang” maintains 15 buildings on our 10-acre site.
· The Docents provide guided tours of the buildings each week and special annual tours.
· Collections volunteers add new acquisitions to a database and help maintain the collections.
· Hospitality members prepare refreshment for our year-round dessert socials and other events.
If you have an interest, we’ll find the right volunteer position for you!
③ Donate an artifact
The number of items in our collection is enormous, and the vast majority has been donated by area residents. If you have something that might enhance or extend the society's collection, please contact our Acquisitions Coordinator to discuss the item. Our accessions policy is also available for download; this policy guides the Collections Committee in determining whether a donation is acceptable.
