“Norwalk’s Changing Communities 13,000 BC – 1835”, curated by Elizabeth Pratt Fox, explores the area’s history from the end of the Ice Age in 10,000 BC through 1835. This comprehensive, interactive exhibition is family friendly with hands-on activities and games. Learn about the arrival of the first people of Norwalk, the Indigenous People, their contact with the Europeans and the development of Norwalk during the 17th and 18th centuries as well as during the dawn of the industrial age. Discover how community, work, and home changed over this period and how the people who lived in Norwalk adapted to those changes.
Then stroll through the Mill Hill Burying Ground, Norwalk’s third oldest, and enjoy a lovely view of the Norwalk River from the Colonial Herb Garden.
The exhibition was funded in part by grants from Connecticut Humanities and the City of Norwalk Historical Commission.
