Taverns in early Connecticut were more than just a place to drink. Travelers and locals alike saw taverns as a place to be entertained, spread news and gossip, have a good meal, and get a night’s lodging. Learn about how taverns were an essential part of every Connecticut town.

CELEBRATE WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH! VIRTUAL PROGRAM
THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 2022 7:00 PM
Please join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month with the Prudence Crandall Museum, a National Historic Landmark located in Canterbury, CT, and learn why, by an act of the General Assembly, Prudence Crandall became Connecticut's State Heroine.
In 1832, Crandall, the white principal of the Canterbury Female Boarding School, was approached by a young African American woman named Sarah Harris asking to attend the academy. When residents protested the school’s integration and parents threatened to withdraw their students, Crandall closed her school and reopened in 1833 for African American students.
What happened next?
Watch a half-hour documentary “To All on Equal Terms,” followed by a short Q&A with museum curator Joanie DiMartino to learn more.

In honor of Black History Month, we are pleased to have Maisa Tisdale as our guest speaker. Maisa is the President and CEO of the Mary & Eliza Freeman Center for History and Community.
Discover Little Liberia, a community established in Bridgeport by African and Native American residents as a free city during the 1800’s, filled with empowered women who started businesses while their men earned a living at sea, well before women’s rights were established. The successful quest to save the last two remaining homes of this community from demolition, once owned by key contributors Mary and Eliza Freeman and now recognized in the National Register of Historic Places, has evolved into a mission for restoration. Also discover the connection of this community to Trumbull.
Please send RSVP to email@example.com to receive the Zoom link for access to this virtual program.
The Trumbull Historical Society's House Tour will be postponed until 2020.
This will enable us to showcase a number of beautiful homes in conjunction with another Society event.
We wish everyone a happy holiday season.
The Bee is composed of a group of women who meet in the evening of the last Monday of every month. We work on projects (knitting, sewing etc.) or just chat. It's very relaxed. If you can make the meeting, fine, if not there's always next month. And.......we offer tea (or coffee) and cookies.
If you'd like to have your name added to our calling list, send name and email address to the Trumbull Historical Soc. office at (203) 377-6620.
