Rowayton Historical Society
Pinkney Museum hours:
Rowayton has always been a holiday destination. Post cards home to loved ones and friends both advertised our community’s charms and served as colorful souvenirs of happy times. Join us. The weather is beautiful!
Admission: $5; RHS members and children free
The RHS Summer Cocktail Party
A perennial favorite: join us for delicious food and drinks, live music, special guests, and great company on the beautiful banks of the Five Mile River as we celebrate summer.
Exciting New Exhibit
The Historical Society is fortunate in having a collection that illustrates Rowayton’s connection to maritime history. Among our holdings, we preserve photographs, paintings, prints, models and objects that have been collected and donated for this purpose. This year we are embarking on a project to renovate and reinterpret the boathouse and its collections. We intend to include an ecological history of the Five Mile River which will highlight the flora, fauna and marine life that flourish in our waters and the changes that have occurred as a result of our interaction with the environment. We hope to present a dynamic story of our place in the history, one that will appeal to all ages of the Rowayton community. Look out for updates on our exhibitions!
The Pinkney Memorial Garden
The Pinkney Memorial Garden has been enjoyed by thousands of people over the years, cherished as a beautiful, tranquil escape from the busy world. It’s maintained by the Rowayton Historical Society and Rowayton Gardeners, and volunteers are always needed to help keep the garden looking its best. If you’d like to join in the fun, contact the RHS or Erin Combs.
