More About Time Machines to the Past: Connecticut Town Greens

Celebrate Connecticut’s first open green spaces!

In fact, over 170 public spaces remain on which we can walk where our ancestors and predecessors walked. Author Eric D. Lehman will tell the remarkable story of these time machines that put us in touch with thousands of people over hundreds of years, from the past to the future. Mr. Lehman will also be selling and signing copies of his book, “Connecticut Town Greens”. If weather permits, a stroll to Norwalk’s Historic Green for refreshments will conclude the event.
