History of the Rowayton Historical Society

The Society was founded in 1959 to preserve Rowayton’s vibrant history by maintaining and exhibiting its archives, memorabilia and artwork. Membership and public meetings are held regularly during the year at the Seeley-Dibble-Pinkney house including special programs and speakers. Displays and exhibits, addressing the history of our region are open to the public. We encourage researchers and other interested people to contact us with their questions.
