To kick off our Made in Burlington Then & Now campaign the BHS is proud to announce a tour of Lamothe's Sugar House at 89 Stone Road in Whigville. Join us Sunday, March 9th at 2PM for this in-sugar-season tour. We'll be meeting at the Tavern at 1:30PM to car pool or you can just meet us there. Robert Lamothe is the largest producer of maple products in Connecticut. The tour is co-sponsored by the Whigville Grange. RSVP to email@example.com.
Everyone is invited to return to the Elton Tavern for a private viewing of our newly decorated ladies parlor.
Our theme, "Made in Burlington, Then and Now", was introduced at our Annual Meeting in November. Jerry Mullen presented an excellent and informative program on his family business, William R. Hartigan & Sons. It is located near the Farmington River, at the corner of Routes 4 and 179, and has operated continually for 144 years. The standing room only crowd was well rewarded with the history of his family and their business.
BHS plans to have a number of historical and current businesses highlighted throughout the year.
