Presented by the Salisbury Association Historical Society in collaboration with the Scoville Memorial Library.  Sixty years ago, floods changed the landscape of the Northeastern U.S., particularly Connecticut, the hardest hit of all New England states. Hurricanes Connie and Diana deposited over 20 inches of rain in one week in the northwestern part of the state.  In Connecticut, the Housatonic River watershed was one of the most affected. Gather together to view images and hear live reminiscences of the 1955 floods in Salisbury. Stories from the Salisbury Oral History Project and images from the Salisbury Association Photograph Archive will be included. As always we welcome all, but we extend a specific invitation to those who lived through that time and would be willing to share their experiences. Light refreshments will be served.
