Ball & Socket is now on the Connecticut Register of Historic Places.
It was a working factory for almost 150 years, from 1850 until 1992. This place was a vital, local manufacturer, supporting generations of families in the area. Immediately upon acquisition of the property, Ball & Socket Arts sought inclusion on the state historic register.

New life for old buildings.
When operational, Ball & Socket Arts will present curated art exhibits with a focus on contemporary art, foster arts-related community organizations and provide a venue for music, theater and the humanities.
In the meantime, we are creating art projects and hosting events to engage supporters.
