The Huntington Historical Society presents
"The Forgotten Valley, Forgotten No More"
Sunday, June 22, from 2 to 5PM
Stanton Hall

The event focuses on the early history of the Town of Norwich, a former name for Huntington, and the valley areas of Knightville and Indian Hollow affected by the construction of the Knightville Flood Control Dam in 1939-41 on the east branch of the Westfield River.

Through use of photographs, audiovisual equipment and the spoken word, the period from 1773 to 1941 will be covered.  Special guests Winnie Bates Smith of Huntington and Albert Edward Strong of Westfield, both in their 90's, will tell about growing up in the valley in the 1920's and '30s, before the dam was built.  Several descendants of first settlers of Norwich will also be on hand with information about their families.

The program is free and includes refreshments, with donations gladly accepted.  Stanton Hall, located at the junction of routes 20 and 112 on the town green, is air-conditioned and fully accessible.  Call Historical Society members Bill at 667-3049 or Jill at 667-5794 for further information.
