Our Mission Statement
Preserve New Fairfield's mission is to preserve, protect, and maintain local historic structures and artifacts, and to promote community education and involvement in historic preservations efforts.
The Parsonage & The Hubbell House
When two historic homes were threatened by the wrecking ball, Preserve New Fairfield was born. This dedicated group of volunteers joined forces with town and state officials to find a new home for these gems. The buildings were lifted and moved, intact, on huge trailers (check out the video above). Moving day was quite an event with the whole town turning out to watch their own history, literally on the move.
Community Education & Events
With our mission always in mind, we work tirelessly to search out opportunities to preserve structures and artifacts of our beloved town. In order to do so we organize several events throughout the year to engage the community and also to help us raise the money needed to preserve our mission. Check out our calendar for this year's events.
