      Behind-the-Scenes Tour: G. Fox & Co., Hartford's Iconic Department Store

      Shopping in Hartford in the 1950s through the 1990s was synonymous with its largest downtown department store. Come browse through the CHS's collection of G. Fox memorabilia, store displays, and G. Fox & Co. branded products from scotch to toilet paper! Share your own pleasant memories of tea in the Connecticut Room, back-to-school shopping and the holiday decorations that made your visit special. This trip down memory lane is a perfect chance to get in the mood for the holidays. Visit CHS storage and collection areas not normally open to the public, and learn how the CHS preserves the stories of Connecticut. Tours last approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Questions?
