History of Redding Mission Statement  

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

I will do this by:

  • engaging site visitors with photos and information about my target areas
  • creating new online exhibits for collections that are sent to me
  • creating new online learning experiences for historic topics relating to my target areas
  • presenting my photos and postcards at local libraries and event halls
  • working with other local preservation, cultural and educational organizations, freely exchanging new information and photos
  • working with local businesses to promote their products and services

For more information about my current projects, call me at 860-364-7475. One project of note is my Stormfield Digitization Project. . The digitization project will transform the Mark Twain Library's static archives into a dynamic Digital Historical Resource (web site) which will provide 24/7 online access to photos & information connected with the beloved American author's final years in Connecticut. The progress of this project can be viewed at: http://twainproject.blogspot.com and a full explaination of the project is downloadable in Word format: MTL_Funding_Request.doc

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.
