The Historical Society had a meeting last night to discuss the impending demolition of 13 houses along Whitney Ave by QU. Three are gone already. HHS is working with the Historic Properties Commission to preserve those with historic designation. We will be posting updates here and on our webpages. If anyone would like to become actively involved please email us directly at hhs@hamdenlibrary.org


We have new hours for the History Room.  Beginning September 6, 2016 the History Room will be open on Tuesdays from 10am – 2pm.  Please email Archivist Beth Shutts at hhs@hamdenlibrary.org if you would like to set up an appointment be come in any other time.
