“South Windsor Houses that connect us to National History”
A virtual tour of significant local homes will be offered by the South Windsor Historical Society April 9 at Wood Memorial Library, 783 Main St.
Doris Burgdorf will present “South Windsor Houses that Connect Us to National History” in the 7 p.m. slide program, which is free and open to the public. Representing various parts of town and time periods, the homes are those of past residents who played roles in American history.
A life-long resident of South Windsor, Burgdorf is the designer of our town seal, the illustrator of “Long Hill; The Mary Jeannette Elmore Story,” and author of “A Country Mile” about the historic district on Main Street. She is currently working on the committee to restore Union School and is doing the research for a new book about the houses on the rest of Main Street.
Admission is FREE!. For more information call the library at 860-389-1783, or visit our EVENTS page or www.woodmemoriallibrary.org.
