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.

Tapping into the Past: Tavern Life in Early Connecticut
September 11th, 2022
C.H. Booth Library
25 Main Street, Newtown
The tavern’s significant importance to early Connecticut life will be highlighted at the next Newtown Historical Society program, presented by Natalie Belanger, Adult Programs Manager at the Connecticut Historical Society.
Taverns in early Connecticut were more than just a place to drink. Both travelers and town residents saw them as a place for being entertained, spreading the latest news, enjoying a good meal, and getting a night’s lodging.
