Join Us! Society projects and events require volunteers of all ages. Your participation is essential. The Thompson Historical Society’s mission is to preserve and celebrate the history of Thompson’s 10 villages: East Thompson, Fabyan, Grosvenordale, Mechanicsville, North Grosvenordale, Quadic, Quinebaug, West Thompson, Wilsonville and Thompson Hill. With more than 325 years of Colonial history and many more centuries of Native American traditions and folklore to research, we certainly can use your help!
