History comes alive once again in Windsor on Saturday, June 12, with Connecticut Open House Day! Celebrate the beginning of the summer season at Windsor Historical Society’s historic Strong-Howard House and Windsor history museum! Stop by between 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM to meet members of the Howard family in person and experience this fascinating hands-on history house just as they would have in the year 1810. Members of the Howard family and Society volunteers will be on hand to welcome you to the home and engage you in some hands-on fun!

While on site, explore our fascinating museum galleries, research library, and gift shop too! Visit our special exhibit Windsor in 1921: The Paradox of Progress, and our gift shop that’s chock full of Windsor gifts, local history books, and our selection of Black, Latinx and Indigenous history books. Children will enjoy learning about young Annie Howard through our featured book Annie’s Home, set in early Windsor, by local author and illustrator Christine Ermenc and Sue Tait Porcaro. Bring a lunch and stay awhile – we have picnic tables, a beautiful herb garden and grounds, and historic Palisado Green and Palisado Cemetery to explore! Admission is free for all for this special one-day event.
