The History of Redding Connecticut Schools  

With the help of Jack Sanders of the Ridgefield Press, I have been able to uncover more information on the History of Redding, Connecticut Schools. Mr. Sanders was kind enough to allow me to borrow copies of the Redding Times and it is because of that kindness that I can offer you the expanded history here. Thank you Jack.

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.
