The Amity and Woodbridge Historical Society located in Woodbridge Connecticut,  was founded in 1936 by a small group of citizens concerned with preserving the history of Woodbridge (and Bethany). From Lucy Finney’s living room (our first headquarters) to the 18th century showcase of the Thomas Darling House, the Society has become more than a vehicle to gather and preserve. Its role has expanded to include the dissemination of information to all who are interested and to promote a spirit of community in a rapidly changing world. Please join us!
