Please help the Norwich Historical Society and area residents PROTECT our Historic Norwichtown Burying Grounds!
Tucked away in the Norwichtown Historic District, the old Norwichtown Burying Ground was established in 1699 and is arguably one of the most significant historic resources in Norwich, Connecticut. Founded by English settlers in 1659 on land purchased from Sachem Uncas of the Mohegan tribe, the town was originally built up around the Norwichtown Green, at the center of the Norwichtown Historic District. The Norwichtown Historic District is also a very significant historic resource, containing well preserved architecture from the 17th & 18th Centuries, on up through the 20th Century.
The Norwich Historical Society’s mission is to preserve, protect, and promote the rich history of Norwich, Connecticut. Please help us PROTECT our Historic Norwichtown Burying Grounds! The Norwich Historical Society, a 501(c)(3), has partnered with area residents and other area heritage groups for this crucial effort. Your donations will give us the funding to professionally advocate for the Norwichtown Burying Ground, preserve, and promote not just the Norwichtown Burying Ground, but our rich historic and cultural assets in the Norwichtown Historic District.
This campaign is managed by Norwich Historical Society Board Members and area residents.
