Behind-the-Scenes Tour: Treasures from the CHS Collection

Saturday, February 8 | 2:00 pm
$6 CHS members | $12 non-members | online tickets available at chs.org/calendar

Abel Buel's first map of the United States; a dressing table by Eliphalet Chapin; the Leatherman's mitten; Munson Hoyt's loyalist uniform coat—these are just a few of our favorites of the 265,000 artifacts and images in the CHS collection. None of these treasures are currently on display, but you can come behind the scenes, see them for yourself, and learn about how we care for these special items in our charge. Tour lasts approximately 1 hour and is appropriate for ages 12 and up. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Questions? Call (860) 236-5621x289 or email Jennifer_Steadman@chs.org.
