2020 Annual Appeal
Generous donors like you allow us to continue our mission of preserving and interpreting the past for our community in southeastern Connecticut. Since 1870, we have been a resource for researchers and visitors locally, nationally, and internationally who call and visit us throughout the year. The support of our patrons enables us to create programs and events that enhance the rich cultural history of our county. Moreover, our diverse collection is made accessible through the support and generosity of our patrons.
This past summer we partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of New London to operate a summer history program for our community youth. Some 75 students attended our camp which focused on immigration and ancestry. The camp was designed to teach teamwork, historical research, and connect these kids to their past in the contest of the history of New London. The end result was an exhibit constructed by the students and oral histories posted on our YouTube channel. Our camp was an overwhelming success, and we have been asked to repeat and extend the camp for the summer of 2020. The camp was and hopefully will be , made possible by donors like you who support the mission of the NLCHS.
Additionally 2020 marks the 150th birthday of the NLCHS. Please continue to visit our website and facebook to learn about the events which will mark this year long celebration.
