Current Projects at The Historical Society of Glastonbury's Museum

We're searching for volunteers at the Historical Society of Glastonbury
      The Historical Society of Glastonbury would like to thank the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving for a capital grant of $99,300 to support the reconstruction and related costs for the Tobacco Shed Project. This grant is made possible, in part, by the generosity of the Norma and Natale Sestero Fund.
      The Society would like to thank the Department of Economic and Community Development, State Historic Preservation Office for a Connecticut Restoration Fund Grant of $99,300 for the reconstruction of the Oak Street Tobacco Shed at the Welles-Shipman-Ward house property.

      Facilities reviewed the architect’s bid document for the tobacco shed, established revisions, and initiated contact with him to provide an updated bid document and drawings. Developed CD's of the barn structure to be provided to bidders.

      The architect for the tobacco shed updated the bid documents including some requirements for repairs per our discussions. Developed additional CD's of the barn structure to be provided to the Town. The request for bids was posted on the State Website and a legal notice was posted in the Glastonbury Citizen. A pre-bid meeting occurred on May 1 at 2:00 pm at the WSW Property.

      A Beautification Commission meeting, two zoning sub-committee meetings and a final Zoning Commission meeting for a special permit was held. There were no problems. Several Commissioners applauded HSG for their efforts in preserving Glastonbury history.
