I had been to the Webb Deane Stevens Museum over the summer. It was a nice tour, but nowhere as entertaining as the "Witchcraft and Tombstones" Tour that I joined in on Saturday, October 20th. And what a beautiful day it was. It had to be about 70 degrees, with the perfect amount of sun and wind. Could not have asked for a better day. The tour consisted of an informative and enjoyable 1.5 hours spent at the Buttolph Williams House, ancient burying ground, and lastly, one of the houses that make up part of the museum. And, all this for the great price of $10. Reservations highly suggested.
Tour starts at the Buttolph-Williams House, which has on display replicas of what would have been period time pieces of the 1600's, and the partial setting for "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" written by Elizabeth George Speare. A great, Newbury Award winning novel, highly recommended a read.
I highly suggest this tour for anyone interested learning some great facts about CT History during the mid 1600's.
