Free Public Opening:  Strong Howard House, Parlor and Store

October 5, 2013       1 PM to 4 PM

 

Be one of the first to experience Windsor Historical Society’s newly reopened Strong-Howard House Parlor and Store.  Take a seat in the parlor chairs, explore Captain Howard’s mahogany desk, leaf through some period newspapers and account books and finger bolts of fine fabric and millinery goods in the Howard’s store.  At 1:15 hear from Society staff about the restoration and view the official ribbon-cutting ceremonies at 1:30.   Try some period games such as graces and rolling hoops, sip cold punch and sample some period sweets, and take home a keepsake tour booklet with a discount coupon towards a future admission.    Cost:  FREE.  860/688-3813.
