Rose Hill Lecture Series
The continuation of a three-part series on Rose Hill presented by Public Historian Christina Volpe. Follow the narratives of the Scovill, Welton, and Chase families as they make their fortunes and forge the way for the Brass City to flourish. Supported in part by CT Humanities.

Rose Hill, built in 1854, sits atop Prospect Hill, with perfect views of the green, overlooking the many changes that occurred throughout Waterbury below. Join us for the story of three of Waterbury’s most powerful men and the impact they had in building the Brass City. History Bites is an annual, lunchtime lecture series on topics of local history at different heritage sites throughout Northwestern Connecticut. Attendees are invited to bring lunch. Beverage and dessert will be provided. The 2019 History Bites series is sponsored by the Connecticut Community Foundation.
