Creating Community: Exploring 375 Years of Our Past
Ongoing
This new, hands-on exhibition invites visitors to explore the history of Fairfield and its region for nearly 400 years. Look inside a Native American wigwam, climb into an American Revolution fort, decipher a spy code, and sit on a 19th century trolley. Young and old alike will enjoy learning how people worked, lived, and built communities over time by exploring original objects, individual stories, and engaging activities. Sponsored by CT Humanities, Fairfield County Community Foundation, The Perry Family and Southport Area Association.
