About Us

Welcome to the Norwich Historical Society. Our mission is to preserve and interpret the history of the town of Norwich, the Lewis House and the collections therein, and to foster a greater sense of appreciation and respect for our shared heritage.

The Society maintains the historic 1807 Lewis House in the heart of Norwich’s historic downtown along with an extensive collection of artifacts, photos, and archives relating to the town’s history. Annual exhibits are mounted in the three spacious exhibit rooms on the first floor, and other special events are held at the Historical Society throughout the year. We have an active educational program with the Marion Cross School that brings elementary school students to the Lewis House to learn about more about history.
