Digital Archives

This collection currently includes 45 local history resources, including books, journals, and pamphlets. Like all of our digital resources, they are word-searchable.

The Winsted city directories offer information about residents, businesses, and organizations. Some years include street-by-street listings and listings for Torrington, Norfolk, Goshen, and Colebrook. To date, the years 1874 to 1900 have been digitized.  

The Charles R. Hale Collection
