LETTER: Outstanding effort from community to save History Center

The wind and rain storm on the night of October 28 damaged the roof of the 1822 Brownson House at the Shelton History Center. As a result rainwater severely damaged three floors of the house. The outstanding efforts of the Huntington and White Hills Fire Departments prevented more damage being done to the ceilings and walls.  During the next two days local and state wide volunteers came to help save the documents and artifacts housed at the Center. And when the meeting of the Society’s teen club was cancelled, the kids showed up determined to help with the clean up. Thanks to the efforts of the staff of the Society and all the firemen and volunteers, we have stabilized the Brownson House. Months of repair work lie ahead. If you would like to make a contribution to help repair the damage done by the rain, please contribute to our Disaster Fund at The Shelton Historical Society, P. O. Box 2155, Shelton, CT, 06484 or at
