Historical society

At the annual meeting of the Shelton Historical Society on Sunday, Jan. 31 Carolyn Ivanoff will present an adventure lecture and take guests on a virtual tour of the North American continent and the last frontier as they travel from Connecticut to Alaska and Yukon.

The meeting is free and open to the public, though donations are welcome. It will be held at the Huntington Congregational Church Fellowship Hall, 19 Church St. in Shelton at 2 p.m. Information regarding the recent storm damage that affected the ceilings of the Brownson House at Shelton History Center will be displayed. The Teen Time Travelers, the youth group sponsored by the Shelton Historical Society, will also make a presentation. Refreshments will be served.

The Shelton Historical Society owns the Shelton History Center, a museum complex of six historic buildings located just north of the Huntington Green, and strives to provide programs of historical interest to the community.
