Windham County CT history

We are happy to offer our first bits of Windham County, CT history!

Today, Windham County is referred to as "the quiet corner" of Connecticut, and given the limited number of items we've encountered to consider for publication, perhaps it has always been thus!  What do you think?

 

Now Available for Download:

 

Picturesque Pomfret -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896).  This represents the first of the Quarterly's community profiles in Windham County, and is also the longest so far.  Included are a number of photographs of local landmarks and fine houses.  22+ pages, PDF format, download now for $4.00.

Town of Thompson 1925 Annual Report.  For those unfamiliar with township annual reports, these documents were produced (and still are, particularly in the more rural Connecticut townships) to document the year's activity, ranging from elected officials, people who worked for the town either as regular employees or per diem, expenditures (usually down to the penny) for everything that a town might buy in the course of a year, various tax lists and warrants, the town's financial report, and endless lists of people who interacted with or incurred expenses on behalf of the town government over the year.  This one is quite remarkable because it appears to have also served as the high school yearbook -- something we've not seen elsewhere.  It's 132 pages long, and we suppose that anyone interested in the history of the town, or who had ancestors who interacted with the town government, would find it of interest.  132+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $3.50.
