Norwich in the Gilded Age: The Rose City's Millionaires' Triangle takes you through the doors of elegant, stately homes and into the lives of the rich and famous of the 19th Century in Norwich, Connecticut - their lives, their loves, and their scandals.
Stroll down Norwich’s most fashionable mile of millionaires’ mansions and mingle with the extraordinary people who lived behind their elegant façades during the glamorous Gilded Age. Wealthy manufacturers and merchants constructed magnificent mansions, many of which survive today, along this trendiest triangle in the glitzy Rose of New England. Tricia Staley has uncovered forgotten scandals like the Blackstone baby kidnapping and the bank cashiers who embezzled thousands of dollars from the wealthy residents, as well as the drama of fortunes made and lost. Meet Tiffany’s founding partner John Young, rubber shoe manufacturing king William A. Buckingham, the Slaters, Hubbards and more salacious, stylish titans of industry and extravagance.
