Connecticut Landmarks has been working for over 80 years to preserve the legacy of historic places and stories. As someone who has enjoyed our historic sites, been captivated by the history or architecture, or simply have recognized our legacy of work, we ask that you consider including us in your will. Farsighted individuals have made – and continue to make – a significant impact on Connecticut Landmarks and our ability to inspire interest and encourage learning about the American past by preserving our historic properties, collections and stories. We are deeply grateful to each one of them.
When you make a bequest to Connecticut Landmarks, we recognize and honor your generosity by inducting you into the Legacy Society, established by the organization in 2011.
If you have already made estate plans that include Connecticut Landmarks, please let us know about them so that we may properly recognize your membership in the Legacy Society and let you know about all the privileges of membership.
We’re happy to talk with you or your estate planner to answer any questions you may have. For additional information, please contact:
