History is all around you at Mill Hill Historic Park!
Explore the c1740 Governor Fitch Law Office which has been completely renovated and reinterpreted; new interpretive panels provide information about Colonial life and Governor Fitch.
Visit the c1826 Downtown District One Room Schoolhouse and the exhibit, “One Room Schoolhouses: A History of Education in Norwalk 1650-1870”, which highlights the early history of education in Norwalk using old photographs, original documents and period textbooks. Both exhibits were curated by Dr. Daryn Reyman-Lock with graphic design by Scott Kuykendall.
Then stroll through the Mill Hill Burying Ground, Norwalk’s third oldest, and delight in the blooming Colonial Herb Garden.
