The 11th Annual Old Wethersfield Lantern Light Tours is now available! Due to the ongoing pandemic, this perennial Wethersfield Historical Society favorite is presented as a series of videos on the society’s website here. Join Museum Educator and host Gillie Johnson on a tour visiting notable women from Wethersfield’s past. Filmed on location at the Hurlbut-Dunham House, the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center, and the Ancient Burying Ground, the series opens with social worker Dr. Jane Robbins, who worked tirelessly to improve the lives of Italian immigrants in New York and Connecticut and served as a nurse in World War I. A new video will follow each week.
This content was made possible in part by a grant from the Robert Allan Keeney Memorial Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and through the generosity of our members.
