The Newtown Historical Society invites you to participate in creating a historical record of Newtown’s local experience dealing with the COVID-19 global pandemic. Your contributions will be archived with those of other Newtowners and accessed in the future by scholars, townspeople, students and others who study and look back on this historic time in our modern life.

We have all been touched by COVID-19 in very different and personal ways. Children and parents, seniors and students, merchants, highly educated professionals...all creatively finding new ways to work and play safely. Every kind of individual and family has been forced to adopt new habits almost overnight.

Select the link below and enter your observations on the form that will appear. Don’t be concerned about style or grammar because the facts are what matter.

Ghosts of Newtown’s Past

October 28th, 2023
5:00 - 8:00 pm
Matthew Curtiss House
44 Main St, Newtown

Join us for a candlelit tour as we lift the veil for the ghosts of Newtown’s past to share their story with us. This is a family event for all to experience some history in the dark, with a hint of light to guide us! There may be some tricks, but there will of course be treats! Activities will be available for all ages, and children will be able to pick a pumpkin from Matthew Curtiss’ first ever pumpkin patch. This is a free event, but donations are appreciated.
