Welcome to the Thompson Historical Society

Our Mission

Article II. Section 1.

The purpose of the Thompson Historical Society is to perpetuate the memory of the founders or original settlers of the Town of Thompson, Connecticut, and of other national or ethnic groups who have made their residence here…

Welcome to the Thompson Historical Society, where we share the history of the founders and original settlers of our town. We encourage the study of the historical traditions of Thompson, and work to preserve its documents and relics. If you live in town, or are just curious about the history of northeastern Connecticut and the part Thompson played in shaping this region then and now, we encourage you to take a look through our collections and histories.
