The Kent Historical Society Museum | the artifacts of yesteryear
Marge McAvoy, Executive Director
The archives of the KHS are located at The Swift
House, just east of the Patco Service Station near the traffic
light at the junction of Route 7 and Route 341
12 Maple Street | Kent, CT 06757 | 860.927.3153 or 860.927.4587 www.kenthistoricalsociety.org
The Kent Historical Society was founded in 1954 by a handful
of townspeople who recognized the need to collect and preserve
information and artifacts from Kent’s past. In 1972,
Mrs. Pauline Skiff Gunn deeded the ancient Skiff Mountain
School House to the Society, and six years later charter
member, George Laurence Nelson, left his beloved home, Seven
Hearths, to the Society in his will. For many years, the
Society consisted primarily of people and papers. The papers
were kept in boxes at the Kent Art Association, and the
members met whenever possible to discuss them. As the boxes
of papers multiplied, new space was sought and eventually
a move was made to the Kent Memorial Library, first to the
basement and then to the former children’s room upstairs. Finally in 2002, the six file cabinets and contents of many bookshelves
were moved to the Swift House at 12 Maple Street.
Hours: Tuesday mornings from 9am - 12 noon, Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m., and also by appointment
Open: July through August, Saturday and Sunday 2pm to 4:30pm or by appointment. Free.
