We’re the magazine and podcast of Connecticut history! (Find our podcast at gratingthenutmeg.libsyn.com.) We are a non profit organization founded in 2002. We may be unique in the nation as a publication separate from our state historical society and state humanities council. That means your membership-subscription and gifts to Friends of Connecticut Explored keep us publishing!
We partner with Connecticut’s premier history, arts, and educational organizations to bring you a great magazine—in print, and online.
In our pages and through collaborative programming with our partner organizations, we discuss and debate: “What happened here?”
Through compelling stories and intriguing images, Connecticut Explored explores the state’s cultural heritage with the aim of revealing connections between our past, present, and future.
We are published by a consortium of organizational partners that represent the best heritage, educational, and arts organizations in the state. That’s your assurance that this a high quality—and highly readable—magazine.
Our ultimate goal is to gain a greater sense of what makes Connecticut unique. This is a publication that covers the depth and breadth of our state’s history in articles of high quality but with an eye for lively reading and wide appeal.
We look forward to including you in our circle of Connecticans who love our state, love knowing more about Connecticut, and love a good story!
