On this page of resources we’ve included not only our beloved Danbury school “newspapers” (created for third graders but appropriate for students of other ages) but YouTube videos of
re-enactors portraying Sybil Ludington, Maj General David Wooster, and a presentation on "Why Danbury" which showcases our role in the Revolutionary War.
The Danbury History in Brief page covers additional themes (the 1955 floods, the Kohanza Dam disaster, etc.) in a short-form manner, and the Archive Resources page contains many downloadable subject files on topics from the Revolutionary War to the hatting industry to Marian Anderson's nearly 50 years as a Danbury resident. For more details on how to research at the Danbury Museum, please visit our Research page.
