Quonochontaug Historical Society


The QHS Board would like to extend our warmest wishes for the Holiday Season!  As 2023 comes to a close, we want to express our gratitude for all the support you have provided to us this year.  Health and happiness to you and yours in the new year ahead.  

QHS membership has hit a new high this year.  We are proud to continue our mission to preserve the history of our special and unique corner of the world.

Please enjoy two new videos that Bob Petrone has prepared for 2023 – one that captures still images during all four seasons and one that captures images using Bob’s new drone.  I think you’ll agree that Bob always manages to capture the breathtaking landscape of our enchanted Quonnie setting.  You can access Bob’s videos by simply opening the following video links.

We currently have two QHS Board openings.  If you are interested in joining our team, please reach out to any Board member.  We realize that not everyone has the time to participate as a Board member, but there are other ways that can be very rewarding and useful to our work.  We could use your support!

Happy Holidays!
