Through Local History, A Stronger Sense Of Place
This hour: a lesson in public history. How are towns and cities across Connecticut and the Northeast engaging residents with the past?
We check in with a team of experts and historians. We look at examples of locally driven projects and initiatives, and consider their impact on community building and sense of place.
Do you feel a strong tie to your community’s history? We want to hear from you.
