DescriptionThe New London County Historical Society was founded in 1870. It is the oldest historical organization in eastern Connecticut and one of the oldest in the country. The Shaw Mansion, built by Captain Nathaniel Shaw in 1756, is the society headquarters. Shaw Mansion was used as the war office for Connecticut’s navy during the Revolution, and sold to the NLCHS by the family in 1907, making it an early example of historic preservation.
