Ted Hine Dishes New Milford (and we’re not talking about pottery!)...
This is an old event, from 2014
New Milford Historical Society's Board of Trustee and native New Milfordite, Ted Hine, will be reading selected entries from diaries from the late 1890s on Sunday, March 9th at 2 PM at the Society's museum on Aspetuck Ave. If you missed hearing about it in the late 1890s, now is the time to get caught up on it. You will be pleasantly surprised of all the mystery, war, and day to day living in New Milford at that time. Diaries and photos are a collaborative effort from the society’s archives and Mr. Hine's private collection. This will be a multi-media presentation with a short question and answer session at the end. Light refreshments will be served afterwards.
