A Graceful Village

 10/23/2022 @ 1:00 pm

Visit the historic Gothic style Grace Episcopal Church overlooking the village of Yantic and learn how its communicants have been central to life in this tiny settlement since 1851. Listen to the magnificent pipe organ and hear the stories of the mill workers, farmers and movers-and-shakers of Norwich who have worshipped here for nearly two centuries. Afterward, take a short stroll (approx. half mile) through the little village with Norwich City Historian Dale Plummer. Learn how the old woolen mill is being repurposed in the 21st century. See Volunteer Engine Co. No. 1, founded in 1847, and walk the old stone bridge built in 1909 for a visit by President William Howard Taft. Although registrations are not required, they are encouraged and appreciated by emailing norwichcityhistorian@gmail.com. Sponsored by the Grace Episcopal Church of Yantic, TLGV Member Kevin Harkins & Norwich City Historian Dale Plummer.
