The society owns a genealogical and historical collection consisting of thousands of items.
These items have been protected and preserved for over 32 years by our charter member
and past society librarian TONI I. BENSON, our current society librarian PAM PENDER and
the many volunteers who have given of their time and talents.
This collection has been placed in storage as we await the completion of the
HARTFORD PUBLIC LIBRARY AND ART AND BONNA VANDERLYN COMMUNITY CENTER.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING A PART OF THE HARTFORD COMMUNITY WHICH IS ALSO HOME TO THE
