It’s harvest season and we invite you to join us as we unearth the fascinating history of farming in our picturesque town. From humble beginnings to thriving agricultural enterprises, this enlightening session will transport you through time, shedding light on the things that have shaped Ridgefield’s farming heritage. Get ready to plow through the past and sow the seeds of knowledge with us as we share memories and stories about places like Conklin’s, Dic-Ree, Stonehill, Walnut Grove, Elmer Leeson’s, and Irving Keeler’s farms. If you have any photos or objects related farming in Ridgefield, please bring them with you for show and tell!
The Ridgefield History Club, a program of the Historical Society, will meet regularly throughout the year to discuss the history of Ridgefield and all its villages. All are invited: just bring your love of history and your curiosity. This is a great opportunity to connect with other history enthusiasts and learn something new about our wonderful town.
The Ridgefield History Club is an informal story telling session (it’s not a presentation or lecture) where everyone sits in a circle and shares memories related to a specific topic in Ridgefield’s history. The discussion will be recorded and cataloged in the Historical Society’s archive to preserve the memories of all of Ridgefield’s people, places, and events for future generations.
