SHELTON, Conn. -- The Shelton Historical Society will hold its annual meeting on Sunday, Jan. 31, at the Huntington Congregational Church Fellowship Hall.
Carolyn Ivanoff will present an adventure lecture and take guests on a virtual tour of the North American continent and the last frontier as they travel from Connecticut to Alaska and Yukon.
Information regarding the recent storm damage that damaged the ceilings of the Brownson House at Shelton History Center will be displayed and discussed. In addition to the ceiling damage, walls of four front rooms, and its main collection storeroom in the basement were also damaged. The society has put up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising $5,000 to help cover the repairs.
Some of the items damaged during the storm included letters, diaries, scrapbooks and manuscripts stored in document boxes that were on shelves in the main storeroom.
The Teen Time Travelers, the youth group sponsored by the Shelton Historical Society, will also make a presentation during the meeting. Refreshments will be served, and the meeting is open to the public.
The Shelton Historical Society owns the Shelton History Center, a museum complex of six historic buildings located just north of the Huntington Green, and strives to provide programs of historical interest to the community. For more information or directions, call 203-925-1803 or visit www.sheltonhistoricalsociety.org.
The Hunting Congregational Church is located at 19 Church St.
