are pictures of old houses, mills, small businesses, and people.
We also have photographs of events that have taken place over the
past sixty or seventy years, including the building of the Saugatuck
Reservoir, and the flood of 1955.
The Society has a collection of approximately 40 quilts of various sizes. Some
are utilitarian in nature and others more decorative and special. These have
all been donated to the Society by members of the community. The society
held two major quilt shows, one in 1987 and one in 1992. A large community
quilt was made by Society members for Weston's bicentennial in 1987 and currently
hangs in the Weston Library Community Room. It contains the names of many
Weston residents of that time.
Our genealogy collections include the genealogy of several Weston founding
families including the Coleys, the Messex family, the Godfreys, the Lockwoods,
and the Fitches.
We also have a large collection of the histories
of the homes in which these people lived, most often handed down
from generation to generation.
