Southington Historical Society
The town's heritage is celebrated at the museum operated by the Southington Historical Society,
located in the old library at 239 Main Street. Among the collection are the facade of the country's
first bolt factory, which was located in Milldale, and the wood door to the fort located on what was once
known as Pudding Hill.
The historical society also oversees the operation of the restored South End Schoolhouse, a 19th century one-room school located at the exit to Recreation Park on South End Road. The society council meets at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month (except January) and holds numerous programs and fundraising activities throughout the year.

Southington Parks & Recreation Department
The Southington Parks & Recreation Department is very proud of its Parks & Recreation programming offered to the people of Southington. There are four major parks and two satellite parks which have a variety of facilities for sports, passive, arts & leisure recreation. Panthorn Park, located on Burritt Street, has 139.9 acres that includes a lighted softball field, tennis and basketball courts. It also has a nature trail, play-scape (which is handicap accessible), fishing pond, Little League Softball complex and Lacrosse fields. Recreation Park, located on South End Road, has 37.6 acres and Memorial Park, located on Woodruff Street, has 20.5 acres. Both parks offer the same facilities as Panthorn Park except that Recreation and Memorial Park houses the two municipal swimming pools in town and the play-scapes are not handicap accessible.
The new addition to the Parks & Recreation is Crescent Lake. This area is 256 acres in size and has a 53 acre lake used for boating (no gas-powered motors), fishing (including ice fishing), hiking trails, passive & leisure recreation.
The Department offers eighteen day trips throughout the New England. We sponsor seventeen concerts every Wednesday from mid May to mid September, featuring top bands. The Parks & Recreation Department offers softball, volleyball, basketball and soccer to the adults in Southington. The youth of Southington have four Little Leagues to participate in, including girl's softball. Basketball, Midget Football, Lacrosse and Cheerleading are also featured. The Recreation Department is not blessed with a Recreation Center, so we have to rely on the Board of Education for school use, which means scheduling events can be difficult at times. But all in all, we do quite well with a minimal amount of difficulty. You can reach the Parks & Recreation Department by calling (860) 276-6219 or you may fax us at (860) 276-6204.
