HISTORY BITES LECTURE SERIES: Bearing Bad News: A History of Waterbury’s Sign Post
May 3, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us at the Museum for HISTORY BITES LECTURE SERIES: Bearing Bad News: A History of Waterbury’s Sign Post. A controversy erupts in the summer of 2017 over an object on the Waterbury Green. This bizarre, metal-capped wooden pillar has stood on The Green for as long as anyone can remember. But what is it? Why is it there? Donald Dostie will explore what the history of the post–at times romanticized, vilified, and largely ignored–can tell us about how the city perceives itself and how we tell the story of our past. Bring your own bagged lunch. Cookies and lemonade provided.
