Sobre mimGreenwich enjoys a truly colorful past. From its precarious position on the Connecticut Frontier during the American Revolution to its later reputation as a gilded-age enclave for the rich and infamous, Greenwich has long been associated with well-known individuals and pivotal events in the arts, business, journalism and politics.

The Greenwich Historical Society was founded in 1931 to collect and chronicle this vibrant history and has actively pursued its mission at the Bush-Holley Historic Site since purchasing Bush-Holley House in 1957. The circa 1730 structure began life as a home for prosperous merchants and gained recognition later as a boarding house and gathering place for many prominent American artists and writers. It is a National Historic Landmark, a member of the Historic Artists Homes and Studios, one of 18 museums in Connecticut participating in the Connecticut Art Trail and accredited by the American Association of Museums.

The Greenwich Historical Society also boasts an extensive research library and archives that contain over 1,200 linear feet of archival material; it is home to the Vanderbilt Education Center, which accommodates lectures, family programs and hands-on activities; and it includes the 1805 Storehouse Gallery, a former warehouse, store and post office that features rotating exhibitions and a museum store. The landscape and gardens are restored to circa 1900, the era when the Holley Boarding House, along with Cos Cob Village and harbor became one of the first American Impressionist art colonies.

The Historical Society is noted for award-winning school, after-school and summer camp programs, themed, docent-led tours of Bush-Holley House, lectures, rotating exhibitions, live storytelling programs.

The Greenwich Historical Society contributes immeasurably to the cultural vitality of this unique community and serves as a bridge from the past to the future by offering innovative programs, exhibitions and preservation initiatives.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaThe Library & Archives consist of over 1,300 linear feet of personal papers and manuscripts, organizational records and photographic materials; printed works such as histories, genealogies, catalogs, maps and atlases and audio and videotape, pertaining to all aspects of Greenwich history, Bush-Holley Historic Site and the Cos Cob art colony.
