The Ridgefield Historical Society was established in 2001 to preserve, catalogue, research, and disseminate information about the history and architecture of Ridgefield, Connecticut. Ridgefield, now a community of 22,000 people in west-central Fairfield County, was founded in 1708, when about 30 families from Long Island Sound settlements received permissions from the Royal Governor and bought these uplands from the Ramapoo Indians. 

Since then, Ridgefield has had a rich history that includes Revolutionary War battles, personalities such as Benedict Arnold, who fought here, and Eugene O'Neill, who wrote here.

In September 2002, the Society opened its new headquarters in the c.1714 "Scott House." The building had stood for more than two and a half centuries in the village, bur facing demolition it was disassembled, moved to 4 Sunset Lane and fully restored with the help of many community contributors.
