Washington History Club in the Morning – POSTPONED

Monday, March 16th, 10:00am at the Washington Senior Center

Topic: Washington Hotels, Taverns, and Inns

The Mayflower Inn in Washington, circa 1920. From the collection of the Gunn Historical Museum.

People started vacationing in Washington around 1850. Throughout the past three centuries, dozens of lodging places have opened up to accommodate such visitors. These businesses also employed many Washington residents. If you worked at or stayed at any of the inns in town, we’d love to hear from you. Bring your memories, stories, photographs and objects to share!

Everyone is invited to attend this free program. The Washington Senior Center is located at 6 Bryan Hall Plaza, Washington Depot, CT 06794. Call the Gunn Museum at 860-868-7756 or view for more information.
