History in The Last Green Valley – the Collaboration Continues with Huntington!
History in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor is our story. To help preserve and pass on compelling stories, The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) will be organizing quarterly programs to share the many resources in the National Heritage Corridor’s 35 towns.
Each quarter, volunteers and staff from different organizations will present their specialties connecting history in the Last Green Valley. The goal of the regional collaboration is for all participants to learn from each other instead of duplicating efforts and energies.
History In the Last Green Valley Explored with the Governor Huntington Trust at the Huntington Homestead
The Governor Huntington Trust members will host the third session of the year on Friday, August 19, 2016, from 4-6 pm, at the Huntington Homestead, 36 Huntington Rd. (Rte. 14), Scotland, CT 06264. (Enter driveway, drive through stone wall opening, park in field to left of homestead.)
The Huntington Homestead, a National Historic Landmark and birthplace of Samuel Huntington, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a distinguished statesman during the Revolutionary War and early Republic is a remarkably well-preserved site. The 18th century house sits on its original foundation surrounded by acres of farmland. Mehitabol Huntington will share some recipes of the past, from the days of “Hearth Cooking.”
The presentation will cover “This Old House”, and also touch on the struggle/wish for greater support of W3R (Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route), an historic wonder itself.
