In Case You Missed It
June 19-July 2, 2016
Just catching you up if you care to be caught up.
Museums: A classic! The Connecticut River Museum in Essex. Also, I finally wrote up my 2011(!) visit to the Middlesex County Historical Society Museum – a.k.a. the General Mansfield House in Middletown.
Trails Tuesday: The Wolcott Trail in Torrington was rechristened with its correct and original name – the Walcott Trail. Check it out.
Wildcard Wednesdays: The story of John Mason and his statue that moved from Groton to Windsor is a fascinating one. (That I found the original “offensive” plaque in a closet in Mystic makes it more so.) Also, a new post about the Portland arch which isn’t what you’re thinking of… But the Soldier’s and Sailor’s Monument in Hartford probably is. You can climb up to the top!
Previous Question: Ignoring exact spelling, Connecticut has three towns that share names with cigarette brands. Name them.
A: Marlborough, Kent, Salem
This week’s question: What is the name of the university, not located in Connecticut, named after a former chunk of land “owned” by Connecticut?
Thanks for reading!
