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
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/.
