Many of the members of the Board of Trustees at the Old Saybrook Historical Society made the trek up county. These great folks have become huge fans of this project. I’m thrilled to be working with them, especially Tedd Levy, at left, who made set us on the path.

Many thanks to Thayer Talbott of the Community Foundation for taking these photos.
