I am doing research on my Great Great Uncle who served in the Civil War. Lots of resources and lots of nice people to help you out. Have to go back to look at more books and papers.

I visited this place with a group of friends, all students of history. This place with its collection of newspapers, directories and a host of other archives interested me a lot! It was an amazing feeling to go through some of the collection which were very old but were equally valuable. Great information on the Revolutionary War Period! Am Glad that I got a chance to visit this place, would surely like to come back again and again to visit this storehouse of information.

This place is a real treat but is almost always empty. The old newspaper clippings are a wonder to behold. I found where my Grandfather had his Paint Store & my aunt's wedding announcement.

The place to go to research early times in Connecticut, New England, or the United State. Great place to research a term paper (which I did). One of a kind books that offer information that you cannot get elsewhere. Many other facets to observe, other collections such as early coinage.

Across Capital Avenue from the State Capitol is a building housing the State Library and Archives, the State Supreme Court, and tucked away, a wonderful museum. The Colt gun display alone is worth the trip, but there is much else to see.
