Society Saturday: Mansfield Historical Society

   As a follow-up to Friday's post, I wanted to give you some insight into the Mansfield Historical Society. Based in the northern Connecticut town of Mansfield, the society was founded in 1957. In the years since, it has its base in a variety of historic buildings around town. It current occupies the Old Town Office Building. The building contains both a museum and a library.
   The library, open during museum hours, is the most likely to be of interest to a genealogist. Currently, the collection houses over 3,000 manuscript items related to the history of the town and local families. While the collection is not listed online, the Society may be able to offer you more information by phone. Good luck!
