ConnecticutHistory.org is a multi-layered digital history project full of stories about the people, places, and events that make up our state’s rich history. Written for a digital audience, the project conveys information through short, concise topical essays that also provide readers the opportunity to delve more deeply into particular aspects of the stories that interest them.

In addition to providing interpretive content, ConnecticutHistory.org links readers out to the primary- and secondary- source resource collections housed at libraries, museums, and heritage organizations across the state. In this manner, the site does more than just document important historical narratives, it also connects people to information and showcases important historical resources that might otherwise remain obscured and underutilized.
