    320)   Colebrook Historical Society visits the Squire's Tavern - June 20, 2007
                     A group from the Colebrook Historical Society visits the Squire's Tavern.  Walt Landgraf gives a tour of the Tavern and provides information on the restoration of the Tavern.  Walt provides background on consultants used by the Barkhamsted Historical Society during our restoration work including advisors specializing in areas such as paint analysis, iron hardware, stenciling and old house construction.  The Colebrook Historical Society is currently involved with a restoration project on their main building, part of which was the former Colebrook town hall.

  • 318) Historical Society Tag Sale

    318)   Historical Society Tag Sale - June 2, 2007
                     The Historical Society tag sale was held on June 2 at the Town Garage on Route 44.  What a great location!  We set up our tables, put out the items and with just one small sign at the road side, the curious and the bargain seekers are drawn in.  This modest tag sale is now our main fundraising event because the large flea market sales we held in the past grew too large for our small organization to handle.  The tag sale on June 2 was very successful.  We had been collecting items for months.  Thanks to all who donated items, brought plants and food to sell and helped set things up.
