History Now: COVID Collecting

The objects within the Society’s collection are a vital part of our ability to present and interpret the history of Wilton. The majority of the collection consists of objects donated by generous individuals who wish to see the history of town preserved and accessible for future generations. Now, during the historic moments of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society is asking you to consider contributing to its collection.

Do you have an object related to pandemic? Signs informing the community about social distancing regulations? Photographs documenting the unprecedented scenes caused by the pandemic?

If so, email the Society at historynow@wiltonhistorical.org with the following information:

Your name
Your address
Phone Number
A photograph of the object
A brief description of the object and how it relates to the pandemic/Wilton

The Society will consider each potential donation, and if it is determined that the object is confirmed for acceptance into the collection, we will contact you with the next steps.

Please note: The Society is not accepting in-person to the museum at this time. Objects mailed to or dropped off at the Society will be returned to the donor. Objects with no contact information associated with it will be discarded.
