Historic Photos of Georgetown, Connecticut (CT)  

Jack Sanders of the Ridgefield Press and Lynne M. Barrelle of the Weston Historical Society have both forwarded material to help expand the Georgetown picture collection that you all enjoy so much.

Lynne has forwarded "Georgetown Images from the John Moore Collection" Weston Historical Society 2002 and Jack has allowed me to scan in photos from Redding Times issues dated between 1955 and 1960. I cannot thank them enough as they have taken this section to another level and I am very grateful.

These photos along with Janet Tryde's photographs are a terrific addition to the site and I hope you all enjoy them as much as I have. To reduce download time I have created separate sections for each.

*If you have pictures of Georgetown that you'd like to add to this collection please contact Brent Colley at bcolley@snet.net or call 860-364-7475.I only need the photos for a week or so to make copies of them, I will forward them right back to you after that.

History of Redding is a not a business or an organization..It's one person working to promote the history of his hometown
and surrounding areas. All costs are out-of-pocket so donations and/or sponsorships will allow me to dedicate more time
and effort to research and updates.
