November, the archive will be open the 5th and 19th (Thursdays), and the 9th and 23rd (Mondays).
During December it is open by appointment only.


COVID19 protocols are in place. Please email or call for details.

Our Digital Exhibits are always available at www.ledyardhistory.org/virtualexhibit

We are looking for photos (digital or printed) and written accounts of your COVID19 adventures, Election 2020, and other current events. Your Gales Ferry and Ledyard memories will be added to the archive in the Janice W. Bell Historical Research Room at the Bill Library. We can scan items and return to you with a digital copy placed on your flash drive if you like.

We can also assist you in preserving your family history:

Donations of materials related to the people, buildings, and events of Ledyard and Gales Ferry are gratefully accepted for preservation and inclusion in the collection for future researchers, either as digital copies or the items themselves.
Need a safe home for family history items that may not interest younger generations? We can provide that home, and will give you a digital copy. (We can even arrange for items to be kept private until a future date of your choosing.)
Digital copies are easy to share with far-flung family members, or use as a back-up if the original is lost or damaged.
We also welcome curious visitors, anyone with historical or genealogical inquiries, and the loan or donation of items for digitization.
