Leadership in History Award of Merit

The American Association for State and Local History’s prestigious national Leadership in History Award of Merit was given at a special banquet where the Middlesex County Historical Society was recognized for the exhibit A Vanished Port: Middletown & the Caribbean, 1750-1824.  Additionally, the Society was honored to receive the Michael Kammen Award for outstanding effort for an institution with an annual budget under $250,000. Funding for the exhibit was provided by grants from Connecticut Humanities, the Hoffman Foundation, and the Meigs Fund at Wesleyan University.  Additional funding was provided by private donors.
