Overview

Connecticut: Driving through History by Suzanne Staubach

Here are the historic sites of Connecticut, arranged as you'll find them as you drive along the highways and byways of the Nutmeg State. Locations, descriptions of the landmarks and historical markers, and the stories of the occurrences which make each site provide an engrossing look at the state's past and present.

You'll read about the "Peach King," about dinosaur bones discovered in an East Windsor well, and about the Pitkins' glass monopoly...discover the real life mass murder that inspired a Broadway hit...and learn what Washington Irving said about the onions of Wethersfield and what George Washington thought of the food in Connecticut.

Travelers from other states will find this - the most complete guide to Connecticut historical sites in over 60 years - an ideal way to tour Connecticut, and natives will enjoy finding the history that lies just up the road.
