Windsor Birthday Lecture:
The Story Behind the 1633 Plymouth Trading Post
September 28, 7 PM – 8:30 PM
What is the back-story behind Windsor’s founding on September
26, 1633? Al Boehm’s program at Windsor Historical Society
is based on his research for Windsor Exchange Club’s phone
book cover art in 2008, Windsor’s 375th
birthday. Boehm follows Edward Winslow, Plymouth’s diplomat
and trading leader, as he explores and promotes expanding
the colony’s trade territory into the Connecticut River
valley. An amazing and unpredictable set of events during
the 1630’s are examined as Windsor is first settled as a
trading post and rapidly grows into a town within a colony.
Boehm’s research and art reveals a landscape based on
native Algonquian land management practices quite different
from the European practices that define our town landscape
today. Birthday cake served. COST: $6 adults, $5 seniors
and students, $4 members.
