Explore the Governor Fitch Law Office, recently reinterpreted under the joint supervision of the Norwalk Historical Commission, Norwalk Historical Society, and curated by Dr. Daryn Reyman-Lock. Moved to Mill Hill in the early 1970s, the Fitch Law Office is used as a key tool in teaching school children about Colonial life. The Law Office was recently remodeled and redecorated to expand on the ideas previously applied and give an accurate representation of life in the late 1700s. Paint analysis on wood paneling and floors was completed and, subsequently, surfaces repainted to reflect their historic 18th century colors. Reproduction 18th century rugs woven on period looms were laid and furnishings, including desks, cabinets, kitchen and table wares, books and linens, from Governor Fitchs house inventory sourced and installed. New interpretive panels will allow visitors to guide themselves through the building and provide new information about necessities of Colonial living and Governor Fitch himself.
