Giving Tuesday 2021

Scheduled on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement created to give people the opportunity to help their communities. Last year, Wethersfield Historical Society dedicated any funds raised on Giving Tuesday towards the restoration of the historic Hurlbut-Dunham House. This year provides givers a unique opportunity to support the development of a new database of Free and Enslaved People of Color in Wethersfield from 1634 to 1848. This list of under-represented people was painstakingly compiled by WHS’ Research Librarian Martha Smart and researcher Diane Cameron from primary sources. The society is going to make this resource available to the public, free of charge on this website .  Your Giving Tuesday donations to the Wethersfield Historical Society will help pay for the data entry and web development costs associated with this project. Help support our mission of preserving and promoting Wethersfield’s history and culture to inspire all people today and tomorrow. To give, please visit our donation page here.  Be sure to write Giving Tuesday in the “Notes” box. If you would prefer to send a check, please make it payable to Wethersfield Historical Society, write “Giving Tuesday” on the memo line and mail it to:
