Church on the Green

If the village green is Connecticut's most persistent reminder of its proper New England upbringing, the nearby white-steepled church comes in a close second. For well over 200 years, the soaring spires have peeked over treetops and stood like sentinels along curves in the road from one end of the state to the other, creating a powerful, highly visible community of faith for all to ponder.

    Connecticut Captured

    This book includes short, intelligent, very well written essays on 50 "icons" of Connecticut,including Wiffle Balls, Sleeping Giant, hot lobster rolls, stone walls, Pez, etc. I have found that it makes a nearly perfect gift (hard cover, inexpensive, but still enlightening and fun to read) for people who love Connecticut, or who have gone to live elsewhere but remember it fondly.
