Welcome to Webster’s West Hartford!

The Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society presents programs for people of all ages, re-packaging real history and rooting us in our community. Events for children, word nerds, foodies and life-long learners offer different pathways to connecting with our past.

Our blog dedicated to public programs, Research and Recap, will give you tidbits and trivia related to what we are up to at Noah’s house.

Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for immediate intellectual satiety.

The Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society is a not-for-profit museum and cultural destination where citizens can learn to understand and appreciate the past. The museum preserves the birthplace of Noah Webster, the “forgotten founding father,” educator, author and lexicographer who taught generations of Americans what it means to be American.

This National Historic Landmark is also a repository for the history of West Hartford, the community that molded Noah Webster’s future and is still thriving over 250 years later.

The historic house and exhibit spaces are open daily 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. For more information on the museum’s extensive school and public programs, please visit www.noahwebsterhouse.org or call (860) 521-5362.
