Event Navigation

Free with museum admission.

Nearly 25 years ago, Waterbury’s City Historian, Phil Benevento, presented a two-part slideshow about the history of Waterbury at the museum. This is a reprisal of those presentations which focused on Waterbury’s golden age from 1880 to 1920. History, colorful stories, streetscapes, industry, recreation, religion, education all get a nod as we take a virtual walk around the city through rare photos and colorful postcards from the turn of the last century. This presentation, like the one 25 years ago, will be shown in two parts 90 minutes in length. Supported by MacDermid Performance Solutions, a reception with light food and beverages is scheduled immediately following each program.
