Memorial Day Plant Sale & Bake Sale
Join us on Monday, May 27 for our annual Memorial Day Plant Sale and Bake Sale on Monday at Old Brick. It’s a great opportunity to buy unusual plants, many dug from local gardens. It’s also a wonderful way to help CHS raise funds to sustain our beautiful gardens throughout the year.
If you’re willing to contribute plants from your own garden, please dig them up, divide them, pot them, label the plants so we know what we’re selling. Deliver your plants to the back porch at Old Brick by Sunday, May 26.
Museum Room Open Every Thursday
Now Showing: Pierson School Exhibit
An often overlooked gem, the Museum Room in Town Hall is a treasure trove of historical artifacts from Clinton’s past and is now open every Thursday evening from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Permanent exhibits include displays about early settlers, education, Native Americans, industry, shipbuilding, and the War of 1812.
This year, our special exhibit honors the history of the Abraham Pierson School which is closing in June 2019. The exhibit includes memorabilia from many decades including school programs, posters, report cards, and more.
CHS and the Little Red Schoolhouse
Update: CHS board member Carrie Allen has been working with the Town’s Board of Selectman and recently received permission for CHS to inventory and clean the Little Red Schoolhouse. That’ll be the first step. We still plan to seek permission to open the schoolhouse for town-wide events later this year.
On August 28, 2018 a group of CHS board members toured the Little Red Schoolhouse on Cow Hill Road and made plans to help the Department of Public Works decide how to restore the interior so that residents can visit this historical gem. One hundred years ago, this property was the site for the town's annual 4th of July picnics. Wouldn't it be fun to revive that event? The teacups and china are ready and waiting in the cabinets.
