Contribute to Our New Exhibit Space at the Raymond Boathouse

The Rowayton Historical Society is seeking funding to renovate the Frank E. Raymond Boathouse in Pinkney Park. We will host exhibits on local oystering families, hurricanes, ship builders, sailing heroes, Native Americans and maritime disasters and much more. The space will also feature a permanent exhibit on the ecological history of the Five Mile River, highlighting the flora, fauna and marine life that flourish in our waters.

We invite our community to support this effort and share stories of life on the Long Island Sound. 

Donations towards the renovation of the Boathouse may be sent to the RHS at PO Box 106, Rowayton, 06853 or through PayPal:

Many thanks to these generous donors who have already contributed towards this exciting new venture:

  • Fairfield County Bank
  • Rowayton Civic Association
  • Sixth Taxing District of Norwalk 

We’d also like to thank our interns Andrew Bergman and Erin White who have been cataloguing the Museum’s maritime artifacts for future display and scholarship.
