Timely Topics: Windsor’s William Russell House – Its Past,
Present and Future
7:00 PM--8:30 PM
Church’s 1755 William Russell House on Palisado
Green is one of the anchors of Windsor’s historic
district. Built as the minister’s home, it no
longer fits the mission of the church and requires
significant repairs. A builder has made the church
an offer to move the Russell House out of town.
Historian Bill Hosley will start the program with a Powerpoint presentation showing the home’s
historical significance and why he thinks it should
not leave the historic district. Then hear Rick
Huleatt, First Church’s minister tell about
pressures his church and other churches face and why
the home has become a burden for the church. A
representative from the Town of Windsor will talk
about how Windsor’s historic district fits in with
future town plans, touching on the historic
district’s relationship with the Broad Street Green
and with planned new developments in Windsor. Bring
ideas, concerns, and suggestions for discussion
afterwards. Cost: $6 adults, $5 seniors and
students, WHS members $4.
