A Stroll Down Tolland Green…Then and Now

The Old Tolland County Court House Museum will be holding a photo exhibit of the homes in the Tolland Historic District on Sept. 10, 17 and 24. 
There are more than 50 homes on the Tolland Green that are on the National Register of Historic Places, including some that are over 250 years old.
The courtroom walls will come alive with pictures of buildings on the Green from the 1700s and 1800s, compared to the present day.
Visitors will see how the Green has evolved and yet stayed the same. Come learn about the history of the houses, the families that lived there, the shops, taverns and other businesses in the town center.
The exhibit will run on Sundays in September, starting on Sept. 10, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Old Tolland County Court House Museum at 53 Tolland Green. 
Admission is free, donations are always welcomed.

This home at 26 Tolland Green started out as a one-family home but later was transformed into a two-family Victorian with a porch. In the 1920s, it was throughly remodeled back to a single-family house.
