So many reasons to donate!

Preservation of

Historic Sites

Your gift helps us maintain four historic properties in Stonington, Ct., and keeps these properties vital. Our buildings include two wonderful museums, two historic buildings, and a modern research library and archival facility.


We invite students to our facilities, and we take our show on the road. We love to engage young people and teach them about transformative moments in Stonington history, such as the Battle of Stonington.


We have a steady offering of programs and events, including live music at both of our spectacular museums.

New Scholarship

Every year we choose new themes to explore. Our collection days have brought wonderful items into our collection. Our oral history program adds to our understanding of Stonington’s history over the last 100 years. And, each issue of our quarterly newsletter, Historic Stonington, features an original researched article on a local history topic.
