Historical Note

The Municipal Art Society of Hartford was organized on June 14, 1904 in the studio of Charles Noel Flagg. Its aim was to “be of service in preserving and enhancing the beauty of our magnificent city.” The Society was fairly active during World War I but little appears to have been done after 1920. A final meeting in June 1933 decided not to disband but nevertheless made arrangements for liquidating the accounts and transferring the Society’s records to the Connecticut State Library.
