New Exhibit: Opening Reception, May 24, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Our Archives Collection is available on an appointment basis for people to do research on aspects of Westport’s history. We have a library of books on Westport, Fairfield County, and Connecticut history; genealogy; Victorian-era furnishings and crafts; and more. Our temperature-controlled vault contains collections of papers and documents on all areas of Westport history: maps, photographs, family histories, house histories, and much more.
Contact Katie Chase, chair of the Archives volunteers, with your archival questions, email@example.com, and we will arrange a time for you to come in to do research. If you are too far away from Westport for a personal visit, we will search out your information and mail it to you–we have a $10 fee for this, for nonmembers, which includes a reasonable number of copies, plus whatever the postage is; members do not pay a research fee, and pay $.50 per copy plus postage. For nonmembers who come to WHS to do research, the copying fee is $1.00 per page.
If you have documents relating to Westport history that you would like to donate to WHS Archives, we’d be happy to hear about them. Again, contact Katie Chase to discuss what you have at 203-222-1424.
