The Bungalow at Short Beach, Branford, CT -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume I (1895).  This odd bit of social history was clearly relevant 116 years ago to the sophisticated readers of this magazine.  Today it is a bit hard to connect to much beyond the geography.  11+ pages with photographs; download now for $2.75. 

The Bungalow at Short Beach

 

Grove Street Cemetery in New Haven -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896).  This article, by Ellen Strong Bartlett, describes the cemetery, provides its history as well as anecdotes about some of the famous personages buried in this ground.  Many photos of monuments.  12+ pages, PDF format.  Download now for $2.75.

Some Colonial Houses of New Haven -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896).  An interesting article about New Haven in Colonial times, focusing on the residential architecture but going beyond it, by Harry H. Palmer.  It includes photographs of the following houses:  Trowbridge (2), Beecher, Wooster, Arnold, Bontecou, Foote, Pinto, and Hillhouse, and one of the parsonage of the “Blue Meeting House.”  It’s certainly interesting for those with ties to those families, and to those interested in Colonial New Haven.  PDF format, 8+ pages, download now for $2.00.

Center Church in New Haven -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume III (1897).  Ellen Strong Bartlett wrote this extensively illustrated article about the original church of the New Haven Colony;  not surprisingly, the history of this church is interlaced extensively with the history of that colony.  Notable in the article are the illustrations of many of the memorial tablets in the church, and a number of photographs of the crypt.  PDF format, 19+ pages, download now for $3.00.

The Wolcott Plateau -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume III (1897).  Located at the north end of New Haven County, the Town of Wolcott has always been considered a bit on the primitive side, and this short article, by Milo Leon Norton, does little to dispel that impression.  PDF format, 7+ pages, download now for $2.00.

Wolcott Plateau, New Haven County, CT  

 

John Hodgkin (Hotchkin) of Guilford, CT and his Descendents  by Geoffrey Brown  (1988).  This volume was our principal partner’s first venture into publishing history and genealogy, when he (and a lot of very capable relatives) collaborated to produce this genealogy.  Two rather small printings sold out, and with that, the author decided that enough was enough and to move on to other things.  Because people continue to request it, we have decided to add an electronic version. In PDF format, 330+ pages, download now for $9.50.

Delegates' Reports: CT Board of Agriculture (1869) -- The report from the New Haven County delegate begins on page 5 of this document.  See our Connecticut miscellany page for more information.
