    The Norwich Heritage and Regional Visitors Center is located in the 1783 Dr. Daniel Lathrop Schoolhouse on the historic Norwichtown Green. Our mission is to inform residents and visitors about places of interest in the region and about Norwich’s rich heritage through exhibits, presentations and activities. The Center serves as a gateway into the City of Norwich where visitors can learn about our numerous cultural sites and various local businesses. The four Walk Norwich self-guided trail brochures are available at the Visitors’ Center.

    On permanent display in the Center is the “Discover Norwich” exhibit, which is a 10-panel exhibit encompassing themes in Norwich’s history from the 17th to the 20th century. The panels have interpretive text in addition to historical images and maps of the specific eras. The “Discover Norwich” exhibit gives visitors and locals an overview of Norwich’s rich history.

    Outside of the Visitors’ Center is an outdoor information box that is filled with Walk Norwich self-guided trail brochures and brochures from other local attractions. The outdoor information box can be accessed at anytime.
