<p>The Fairfield Museum and History Center, formerly known as the Fairfield Historical Society, is located at 370 Beach Road in a 13,000-square-foot building that was specifically built for the organization in 2007.</p>
<p>Previously, the Fairfield Historical Society, founded in 1904, had been located in a 636 Old Post Road building next to First Church Congregational, but had outgrown its space. The town of Fairfield leased property on Town Green at a nominal fee for the construction of a new facility, and First Church Congregational bought the building that had housed the Fairfield Historical Society.</p> <p>The Fairfield Museum and History Center includes exhibition galleries, a special collection library and reading room, a family education center, an 80-seat theater overlooking Fairfield's Town Green and a museum shop.</p> <p>The Fairfield Museum and History Center also manages the following town-owned historic properties: Bronson Windmill, 2963 Bronson Road; The Burr Homestead, 739 Old Post Road; Sun Tavern on the Town Green; Powder House, 230 Unquowa Road; and the Victorian Cottage and Barn on the Town Green. The Fairfield Museum and History Center also manages Ogden House and Gardens, 1520 Bronson Road, which it owns.</p> <p>Membership benefits include free admission to the Fairfield Museum and History Center, special members-only events, advance notice of tours and programs and store discounts.</p>
