It’s so important to mark the histories of towns, it gives you a sense of place. Chester, Connecticut’s Historical Society is a treasure trove of goodies. If you’ve been to the bucolic town, it looks like a movie set. It is pristine and quintessential New England. The Chester Museum at The Mill is located at an historic 1860s mill site overlooking a waterfall. Chester Museum at The Mill features two floors of award-winning permanent and seasonal changing exhibits.  While the Society has been active since 1970, the building was purchased in 2000 and opened as a museum in 2009.  Located in Chester Center, it also serves as the office for the Society and holds much of its collections and archives.
