About

The society was formed in 1965 in anticipation of the 1968 bicentennial of the incorporation of East Windsor, CT due primarily to the efforts of its founding president L. Ellsworth Stoughton with the support of many members of the community. Our purposes are to discover, procure, and preserve whatever may relate to the civil, ecclesiastical and natural history of the Town of East Windsor in particular and to the state of Connecticut in general.  Its aim is also to collect, preserve and publish historical and biographical material relating to East Windsor and its five villages: Broad Brook, Melrose, Scantic, Warehouse Point, and Windsorville.  The Society is a 501(C)(3) tax exempt organization.

Our main museum  of local history is housed in the East Windsor Academy building. The exhibits and artifacts on display are interesting and varied, reflecting East Windsor’s rich history from Colonial and Revolutionary periods to the present.  Along with the main building, there is the Broad Brook Barber Shop, East Windsor Probate Court, and 2 barns (one with a converted apartment).  The latest edition is the Osborn House which is currently being renovated.  It is scheduled to open to the public August 12, 2017.
