In this episode, Dr. Darla Shaw takes on the role of Anne S. Richardson, prominent philanthropist and conservationist, who donated the land for Richardson Park. The Ridgefield High School auditorium is named after her.
This presentation is a wonderful complement to Terry McManus’s lecture series about Anne S. Richardson and Anne’s Ridgefield estate and gardens. Click here to view Terry’s program.
*Please note the following correction: Anne Richardson did not like colored lights at Christmas and had an ordinance drawn up to include only white lights in the decorating of the town for the holidays. The ordinance still stands today.
