On Sunday, January 24 at 2 PM, join us for our virtual series: Stories from the Thames River Heritage Park. This compelling talk will introduce you to women who have made a significant impact on the educational, economic, cultural and social fabric of the Thames River region. From those who ensured the preservation of Native American language and culture to innovative educators and major Gilded Age philanthropists, women have played a significant role in the history of the Thames River communities. This 45-minute virtual talk tells the stories of just a few of these significant women.
Gail MacDonald, University of Connecticut professor of journalism and author of two local history books, will be your guide for this one-hour virtual talk hosted live on Zoom from the Shaw mansion.
