Event Details

Missy Wolfe will discuss her new book entitled Hidden History of Colonial Greenwich.

Greenwich was known as a wild and unorthodox town. It wasn't proclaimed its own town until it agreed to establish a church. The people were unique and rough. In the seventeenth century, it was a lost world of tithingmen and meeting warners, wild horse hunters, herdsmen, townsmen, pounders, and planters. Faced with an ever-changing environment, citizens set many new-world boundaries. Farmers created common fields along the coast and redesigned wilderness. They balanced religious and civic authority, private and common interests and financial inequities across communities.
