Connecticut Open House Day - Saturday June 14, 2008
Connecticut Open House Day is a special state-wide event sponsored by the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism. On Saturday, June 14, 2008 a variety of cultural organizations and tourism attractions throughout the state will be open to visitors, inviting them to discover Connecticut's fascinating world of art, history and film. The Barkhamsted Historical Society will participate with special hours on June 14. The Squire's Tavern will be open from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. and will have a special exhibit of photos by Paul Kramarchyk. The photos are of historic houses from Pleasant Valley up to Riverton (mostly on West River Road). Our 1846 "friendship" quilt will also be on display. In addition we will have docents available to provide guided tours of the Squire's Tavern. Refreshments will also be available and there is no admission charge. Please include us on your visits to the variety of participating museums and organizations on Connecticut Open House Day!
