Southwick Historical Society Inc

A nonprofit organization

$600 raised by 6 donors

The Southwick Historical Society was  founded in 1971 by a group of interested citizens. Since that time we have purchased two acres of land at 86 and 88 College Highway which house both the Joseph Moore House and the Charles J. Gillett Cigar Factory. The Moore house,built in 1751, is located in the Massachusetts-Connnecticut state line "jog" and was located in four towns, three counties, two colonies and two states during it's history. The house is decorated with donated items that span the life history of the dwelling.

The newly preserved Charles Gillett Cigar Factory was built in 1872 and is the only remaining building of it's type in the Connecticut River Valley. It houses equipment used in tobacco and agriculture, along with ice harvesting from the Congamond Lakes.
