    Historical Society Annual Meeting
    Hope you were able to attend our annual meeting at the Squire's Tavern on Saturday, September 10, 2005.  After a short business meeting and election of officers, Historical Society President Walt Landgraf lead a hike from the Tavern down to the Farmington River.  We learned about the land near the tavern: from glacial times thousands of years ago down to how occupants of the Tavern farmed the area.  After the walk we all enjoyed a picnic lunch on the grounds of the Tavern and celebrated Barkhamsted's 226th anniversary with a huge cake.
