A Vanished Port exhibitSeptember 10, 2016 through 2017

 

A Vanished Port: Middletown & the Caribbean, 1750-1824.  This summer, with the advice and support of a number of local historians, researchers and cultural organizations, the Society is preparing an exhibit that explores Middletown’s rich maritime legacy and ties to the ‘triangle trade,’ the slave-based Caribbean sugar industry in the colonial and early federal eras. Click here for a recent Middletown Press article describing the planning process.  Many thanks to CTHumanities and the Hoffman Foundation for supporting this important exhibit!
