Historical Society

The Hamden Historical Society Library is housed on the third floor of the Miller Memorial Library. Its purpose is to collect, preserve, and make available historical materials relating directly and significantly to Hamden. This Historical Society Library, inaugurated in 1984, provides a safe, central place to research Hamden’s past. It is the only facility in Hamden dedicated for these purposes.  

The Hamden Historical Society Library is open Tuesdays 10am-11:30am and Thursdays 1pm-4pm September through June. Other hours are by appointment only.  Call 203-626-5321 or email the Historical Society archivist at
