Tours of the historic museum are included in admission.
The series begins on Sunday, August 11, as Suffield’s own Luis Lee will share stories of his youth as a member of the Seneca.

The final lecture in the series will feature Laurie Masciandaro of Roseland Cottage on Sunday, August 25, chronicling the history of Connecticut’s Historic Gardens. After Laurie’s talk, members of the Suffield Garden Club will be on hand to highlight late summer blooms and to suggest plantings for your green spaces.
