Cabin Fever Series: Mary Donohue co-author of A Life of the Land: Connecticut’s Jewish Farmers
East Hampton Public Library

Saturday, Mar. 16, 1:00 PM
or call 860-267-6621.
 

Mary Donohue, the co-author of "A Life of the Land: Connecticut's Jewish Farmers," will describe how The Jewish Agricultural Society in New York began an effort in the 1880s to settle some of the new European immigrants on farms in Connecticut. One area the society chose was centered around Colchester, Lebanon, and Montville. The story of these families and how they owned, worked the farms for generations, and developed the resorts of Moodus will be the subject of the talk.

Donohue is the Asst. Publisher of Connecticut Explored magazine and president of Grant House Heritage Services, a full-service historic preservation consulting firm.

Sponsored by East Hampton Public Library and the Chatham Historical Society.
