The exciting new exhibit, Washington, Connecticut: An American Story, opened at the Gunn Historical Museum on August 17th with a celebratory reception. The community gathered to have a first look at this long-awaited exhibition, enjoying the beautiful summer afternoon with treats by the museum’s dedicated volunteers and catering by the Mayflower Inn & Spa.
This exhibit is a collaborative community undertaking that touches on the major turning points in Washington’s history, giving visitors an understanding of the unique people, places and events that have shaped the town we know and love today. If you haven’t seen the exhibit yet, we encourage you to do so!
