Autumn is the perfect time to fall for history, and the Weston History and Culture Center has a lot to share with families.
The Weston History and Culture Center, located at 104 Weston Road, dates back to the mid-nineteenth century and makes the perfect place to step back in time, take in some art and enjoy the changing seasons.
For the last three generations, the Coley home is the only historic house museum in Connecticut that reflects life during World War II. Visitors will see classic home appliances like rotary phones, typewriters and a radio with different songs and programs from the 1940s. The Coley House tour has more activities for all ages.
Not only can visitors come and experience the Coley House, but they also have an exhibit in the visitor center called Weston Illustrated Penned Painter and Sculpted. Weston and Westport became a haven for artists that wanted either a different place to live from New York City or a summer weekend retreat.
Guided tours are held on Sundays and Thursdays. A free author talk "An American Town Goes to War" will be presented this coming Saturday. Many Halloween events are also planned.
