Celebrating Middlefield's 150th!

  Separated from Middletown in 1866, Middlefield is celebrating its 150th this year by acknowledging its history!


  Did you have Middlefield, CT heritage? Godfrey Library can be a great place to start... We have a number of books about Middlefield's past, including cemetery inscriptions, collections of historic photos and more.

Middlefield's cemeteries have also been completely photographed and are available as part of our Godfrey Scholar collection for Premium Members. 

Have a membership? 

Go to www.godfrey.org and click on "Godfrey Scholar +." 




Click on "Cemeteries." 


Click on "Connecticut, Middlesex County Cemeteries."


Click on "Middlefield, CT."

And click on the cemetery name to see photos. Often, our collection is better than what's available on Find A Grave, as it is photographed more completely and earlier, avoiding the recent damage to stones...

Looking for more Middlefield history? The Middlefield Historical Society and Wadsworth Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution are hosting a cleaning for Middlefield's Old North on April 30th at 9 am. More information available here. 

Happy hunting!
