Have you ever been curious about the architectural and archaeological history of properties in Connecticut? Did you know that the Dodd Research Center is a virtual one-stop-shopping destination for information about thousands of historical properties and of hundreds of archaeological digs in the 169 towns in the state? It’s true! The Connecticut Historic Preservation Collection, a listing of which can be found at http://chpc.lib.uconn.edu, has information about architectural and archaeological studies done by professional archaeologists and historians, located at the Dodd Research Center. We receive them from the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism’s Historic Preservation & Museum Division. The studies date back to the 1970s and are current up to the present. Unfortunately, none of the surveys are available online so you’ll have to come visit us at the Dodd Research Center to take a look at them. We look forward to helping you find the properties you’re searching for!
