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.
