The mission of this web site, my history tours and exhibits is to promote and to create an awareness of the history and cultural legacy of Redding, Connecticut.

When I got started the intent was to make it easy for people to find historical information about Redding from anywhere at anytime. Over the years I've found that online historical resources have many advantages... they are available 24/7 365 days a year, they can be used by multiple people at the same time, and they can be updated quickly should new information be found on a topic. The one disadvantage is that history websites are usually owned by one person and should something happen to that person the website goes away when the web hosting bills are not paid.

To ensure that this website stays online for as long as possible I'm asking people to donate to a web hosting fund. The idea is to pay forward the web hosting account fees to ensure that this website remains online with or without me. And yes, I do intend to keep living, I'm just trying to be proactive here. Your mindset changes at 40. :)

Web hosting costs me $60 a year. So it will not be all that difficult to pay forward multiple years on the account if people are willing to help out.

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.
