welcome to the ethnic heritage center

The Ethnic Heritage Center (EHC) is a non-profit ethnic heritage archives, museum, and research center, arising out of the two-decades-long association of five New Haven, Connecticut-based ethnic historical societies:

  • The Greater New Haven African American Historical Society

  • The Connecticut Irish American Historical Society

  • The Italian American Historical Society of Connecticut

  • The Jewish Historical Society of Greater New Haven

  • The Connecticut Ukrainian American Historical Society

To learn more about the EHC and the member societies, explore the links in the left-hand navigation on this site, visit our other website, or find us on Facebook.
