Building a Home in Hartford: A Brief History

Nov 4, 2014 - Feb 1, 2015

Developed with help and consultation from Billings Forge Community Works, this satellite exhibit explores the history of residential buildings in and near downtown Hartford with an emphasis on the transformations brought by urban renewal  projects beginning in the 1950s. Reproduction photographs and illustrations from the CHS collection appear on  panels mounted on the restaurant’s walls; images include houses and apartments captured by Hartford  artist Richard Welling, as well as historic buildings adapted for residential use—such as the Apartments at Billings Forge.

Come visit this exhibit at The Firebox at Billings Forge until February 1, 2015.
