Behind the Scenes Tour: G. Fox, Hartford’s Iconic Department Store

November 17, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm |


Shopping in Hartford in the 1950s through the 1990s was synonymous with its largest downtown department store. G. Fox is gone, but here at the Connecticut Historical Society, we’ve preserved an amazing collection of G. Fox memorabilia, store displays, and G. Fox & Co. branded products, from scotch to toilet paper!

You’ll visit storage and collection areas at the CHS that are not normally open to the public, and learn how we preserve the stories of Connecticut. Share your own pleasant memories of tea in the Connecticut Room, back-to-school shopping and the holiday decorations that made your visit special. This trip down memory lane is a perfect chance to get in the mood for the holidays.

Tours last approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up. Space is limited, and we strongly recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time online or by calling (860) 236-5621.

Questions? Call (860) 236-5621 x289 or email natalie_belanger@chs.org.

$10 for CHS members, $15 for non-members
