Upcoming Connecticut History Events  

On October 20 at 3:00 PM, Stuart Reeve and Kathleen von Jena will present a talk entitled "Lonetown: Warrups, Reads and the Colonial Frontier." at Highstead.

The talk will explore the struggles by local Native Americans to retain traditional lands in Redding. John Read, the “Father of American Law”, was the first English settler in Redding in 1711, buying land from Chickens, a Pequonnock-Aspetuck. Read's son and family formed a close alliance with Chickens, his son Warrups and family. This presentation describes archaeology at Read's Lonetown Manor, Chickens' Reservation, and other important sites that have been discovered over the past 15 years as a result of the town’s support for archaeological surveys.

Highstead is at 127 Lonetown Road (Route 107), Redding, CT. While the talk is free, pre-registration is requested. Please call 203-938-8809 to register. The Highstead web site can be accessed at http://www.facebook.com/l/ZAQEux2yW/highsteadarboretum.org/. For questions, please call Jodi at jcologgi@highstead.net.
