Behind-the-Scenes Tour: Remembering G. Fox & Co.

December 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm |

***We’re sorry, this event is sold out!***

Shopping in Hartford from 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.  We’ll take you into  storage and collection areas to see these items for yourself. Share your own happy memories of tea in the Connecticut Room, back-to-school shopping, and the holiday decorations that made your visit special.

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 (CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS) 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
