The New Milford Historical Society 2012 commemorative medallion is available to purchase at several locations in town.

The medallion features the United States Hotel (c. 1796) that was on the north corner of Main and Bank streets, at the site of the former Slone Pharmacy.

In its day, the United States Hotel was considered to be one of the finest, largest and most complete buildings of its kind in Litchfield and Fairfield counties.

In 1963, the original Georgian doorway and its leaded overhead sunburst window were incorporated into the new brick building for the New Milford Historical Society as its main entrance.

The medallion may be purchased for $12 at the New Milford Historical Society on Aspetuck Avenue, Robertson's Jewelers on Main Street and the Bank St. Book Nook on Bank Street.

Historical Society medallions from previous years are available for sale at the historical society and museum.
