Located in the two-story historic home of Civil War surgeon, Dr. Henry Janes, the Waterbury Historical Society History Center contains documents, photos, and artifacts from Waterbury's rich history in such areas as manufacturing, public service, farming, medicine, education, tourism, and transportation.
All visitors and researchers are invited to take self-guided tours of our exhibits during municipal business hours. The museum can be accessed by entering through the main doors of the complex and turning right, passing through the Town Offices. Ask at the front desk for accessibility to the second floor. Special Saturday open house events are also offered throughout the year. To arrange a visit outside of municipal hours, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHS is here first and foremost to tell the story of the people of Waterbury. Volunteers and donors are the backbone and lifeblood of our society. Without such folks, the Waterbury story would be incomplete. Your support matters.
Let's get local history into everyone’s hands and hearts!
