Antiquarius: A Win/Win

Antiquarius is quite simply our most important fundraising event of the year. When you support Antiquarius, you make a lot of good things happen: You enable the Historical Society to collect and chronicle the vibrant history of this unique community so that we can share it with current and future residents, scholars and students. You help to sustain the Library and Archives so visitors can learn the Greenwich story through photos and primary source documents. You become a steward of beloved Bush-Holley Historic Site, help launch fascinating art and history exhibitions, further preservations initiatives and allow us to offer education programs for all ages.

When you participate, it’s a win/win. You contribute immeasurably to the cultural vitality of Greenwich and have a really good time doing it. What could be better?

Celebrate the holidays in high style by attending all these exciting events. Many thanks!
