The Tolland Historical Society will host a talk on Sunday, June 4 at 2 p.m. by local resident Richard N. Symonds, Jr. on “Tolland’s Water-Powered Mill Sites.”
The talk will be held in the shed area at the Old Tolland County Jail and Museum at 52 Tolland Green.
Symonds is the author of the history booklet, “Lost Mill Sites in Tolland, Connecticut.”
He will be describing the 18 local historic mill sites and related businesses that used water power. Symonds has based his descriptions in the book on readily available historical materials and inspections of the old mill sites.
The talk is free, but donations to support the Tolland Historical Society are always welcome.
