Sisu and Creativity: Finnish Cultural Heritage in Connecticut

Mar 21, 2017 - May 6, 2017

The CHS and the Finnish American Heritage Society of Canterbury will present an exhibit of Finnish history in Connecticut – their agricultural cooperatives; the built environment including farms, barns, and community halls; the saunas constructed by every family as a social gathering place; and artistic and musical traditions still practiced throughout the community. Art works, images and documents from the FAHS archives, one of the largest Finnish collections in the country, will populate these stories.

Comments are closed.

The Connecticut Historical Society will reopen on August 18. All on-site programs and events are canceled at this time.
