Welcome to another World: Windsor Historical Society Opens Strong-Howard House
Oct 5, 2013
1:00 pm until 4:00 pm
On Saturday, October 5 from 1-4 p.m., Windsor Historical Society invites you to the grand re-opening of the newly restored and refurnished drawing room and store in the Strong-Howard House. Many generous gifts have made this project possible, including recent donations of $100,000 from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and $50,000 from the Town of Windsor. The Society contracted with New Harmony Builders and has been working over the past year to stabilize the home’s siding, framing and sills, as well as upgrade the outdated electrical utilities. At the same time, Society Curator Christina Vida has been preparing to refurnish the home with reproductions of items Nathaniel Howard and his family would have used in this home in 1810. The first section of this home is now complete, and we invite you to be among the first to tour it.
At 1:15, hear from Society staff about the restoration project and view the official ribbon-cutting ceremonies with Windsor Mayor Don Trinks at 1:30. Try some period games such as graces and rolling hoops and take home a keepsake tour booklet with a discount coupon toward a future admission.
