CHS From the Vault: August Edition-“Communities”

August 7, 2014 · CHS in the News

This month Executive Director Jody Blankenship and Research & Collections Associate Karen DePauw join FoxCT’s anchor Tim Lammers for another edition of From the Vault, this time focusing on communities in Connecticut.

Every month the Connecticut Historical Society brings part of its collection to FoxCT’s morning show, highlighting different themes that coincide with the Hartford Courant’s 250th anniversary celebration. August’s theme is “Our Communities”, and to illustrate the different communities in Connecticut Jody and Karen brought items ranging from an herb box made at the Enfield Shaker community to a religious statue that belonged to an Italian family in the Hartford area. Check out the video below to learn more about these items and others and come back next month for items that show Connecticut’s resilience and recovery throughout history.
