Our Commitment to Education

School Programs

Each year the Greenwich Historical Society hosts thousands of students and teachers at Bush-Holley House and barn, the centerpiece of our beautiful historic site on Cos Cob Harbor.   Our interactive, inquiry-based programs give students the opportunity to creatively explore topics and sharpen their critical thinking skills. Each experience is specially designed to complement classroom teaching while providing students and teachers a memorable day full of fun and discovery. Our programs cover topics such as Colonial American history, the American Revolution, slavery in the North, the Industrial Age and the development of American Impressionism. All programs meet state curriculum standards for both Connecticut and New York.
