New London County, CT history

We are happy to offer our first items of genealogy and local history from New London County, Connecticut.  We are actively collecting items from New London County and plan to offer additional items of historical interest soon.


Now Available for Download:

Reminiscences of Bean Hill, Norwich, CT  --  from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume III (1897).  Today a part of the city of Norwich, clearly Bean Hill had at one time a distinct identity of its own – one that was worthy of reminiscence.  We were happy to find this article (really two articles, in consecutive numbers of the Connecticut Quarterly) for those who might wish to share in reminiscences more than a century old.  Download now, in PDF format, 23++ pages, $3.25.

 Bean Hill, Norwich, CT


275th Anniversary of the Town of Colchester, Connecticut: 1698 - 1973 -- Program of Events.   Colchester’s 275th was marked by a celebration lasting more than a week, and this document served as the program for all of it.  As well as the customary letters from elected officials, the summary town history, and the list of donors, there are many photographs of Colchester buildings, and many pages of ads by local businesses.  Also included is some ephemera – found items including a newspaper clipping, a tag inviting one to “tie one on” at the celebration, and a program of an historical fashion show conducted by the Colchester Women’s Club in honor of the 275th Anniversary.  78+ pages, including ephemera.  In PDF format, download now for $4.75.
