Harwinton Historical Society “Hidden History of Litchfield County”

04/02/2017

80 Bentley Dr., Harwinton, CT

The Harwinton Historical Society will present a program on Litchfield County's history on Sunday afternoon March 26, 2017. The program will be hat the Harwinton Library from 2:00 – 4:00 PM. The program will depict the traces of Litchfield County's past that are hidden in plain sight. Vestiges of long-abandoned railroad tracks crisscross the county while a decaying and unmarked cinder block structure in Warren is all that remains of a cornerstone of national defense. All but forgotten today, a fire roared through Winsted in 1908, causing residents to flee their rooms at the Odd Fellows boardinghouse. In Bantam, art deco chairs made by the Warren McArthur Corporation prompted the War Department to order bomber seats from the company during World War II.
Author Peter C. Vermilyea explores these and other obscure tales from the history of Litchfield County, Connecticut. Registrations are not necessary and there will be no fee.
