From Stony Creek to Guilford – Explorations Inspired by the Carleton Granbery Map

From Stony Creek to Guilford – Explorations Inspired by the Carleton Granbery Map
April 29 – May 23, 2022
Opening Reception: Sunday, May 1, 4-6 p.m.

The Friends of the Willoughby Wallace Library in Stony Creek will present an exhibit about the history of the little-studied land and waters between the village of Stony Creek and the Branford/Guilford line. The exhibit will feature original and historical photographs on 13 large panels in the Library’s Keyes Gallery on topics including the Sawmill of Sawmill Road, salt haying and the shifting boundary line between Branford and Guilford.

Artifacts from the area, including materials borrowed from the collection of the Historical Society, will be on display in the exhibit cases in the Library entry area. The exhibit grew out of the study of a hand-drawn map by architect Carleton Granbery.

In addition to the exhibit itself, three lectures will be offered:

• On May 4, Jim Powers, author of Shadows Over Dawnland, will speak on the Indigenous peoples of the area
• On May 11, Jonathan Waters will speak on oystering
• On May 18, Peter Hentschel will speak on seawater rise and the future of Leetes Island Road

All talks will be at 7 p.m. in the Keyes Gallery. For more information, please visit www.wwml.org.
