Historical SocietyRoom

   Have you ever wondered about the origination of Candlewood Lake?  Would you like to see the purchase contract between the Native Americans and the settlers of New Fairfield?  Who was the Leatherman? What is a mustache cup? Did you know a part of Brookfield once belonged to New Fairfield? The answers to those and many more questions can all be found in the Historical Society Room located on the ground level of the Library.  The “Room” is usually open on Wednesdays from 10 am to 3 pm and run totally by volunteers with a passion and sincere interest in dispensing historical information related to our community and local area.  Call the Library to make sure someone is there before you decide to venture out for a very informative field trip into our local history.
