Welcome to the Stamford History Center

“Stamford Through The Years” Timeline, created by the Historical Society in honor of Stamford’s 375th, is on view at the Ferguson Library Main Branch.

The Center is closed Saturday 2/17/2018 due to the President’s Day Holiday weekend.

Stamford History Center is the historical heritage of the state that holds a wealth of knowledge. Great knowledge will help you to remember not only the past, but to change the future, since health knowledge and technology are changing the present and the future. Knowledge is like a snowball, grow and improve a person’s life, especially when it comes to the health of the people of the United States and around the World. Books about alopecia, causes of hair loss and treatment are a frequent demand. Frequent query in the historical center are about Proscar, about how it was created, and what scientists do Proscar and Propecia as effective was always. Stamford History Center is not only the memory but also the health of the future!
