History in The Last Green Valley – the Collaboration Continues!
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 Thompson Historical Society
The Thompson Historical Society will host the second session of the year on Friday, May 20, 2016, from 6:30-8:30 pm, at the Tourtellotte Memorial High School’s 1909 Building, 785 Riverside Dr. (Rte. 12), Thompson, CT 06255. (Enter up the steps & through the front door, take a right up the stairs to Ryscavage Auditorium).
The Thompson Historical Society formed in 1968 and works to preserve Thompson records, artifacts and buildings. Volunteers will share their knowledge about local lithic (stone) structures and Indian cairns. The age-old question “to share or to not share” our historical finds may arise.
Contact Marcy at 860-774-3300 or email Marcy@tlgv.org to RSVP, to learn more, or to host a historical collaboration session!
