Join Windsor Historical Society from 6:30 – 8:30 on Wednesday, June 23, to celebrate the reopening of the historic Chaffee House and museum with a new focus during this special exhibit opening, annual meeting, and program. Closed for the past year, this reopening will enable the Society to begin piloting new exhibit concepts with a focus on illuminating the Black experience in Windsor and the surrounding area. Starting on June 23, two exhibits will tell distinct but connected stories of arrival, identity, relationships, and survival.

Featured on June 23 will be A Home Away from Home: Greater Hartford’s West Indian Diaspora. Explore this fascinating exhibit and talk with curator and UCONN historian Fiona Vernal, PhD. Professor Vernal’s oral histories and research bring to life the experiences of the region’s West Indian community, Connecticut’s largest foreign-born immigrant population. Throughout the rest of this spacious historic home, visitors will also be able to explore preliminary concepts of Bound Together: Complexities of Black-White Relations in Early Windsor, an exhibit that explores the 18th- and 19th-century lives of the enslaved residents of the Chaffee home and the white Chaffee family members whose lives were linked by mutual dependence and shaped by Connecticut’s system of chattel slavery.

Following the exhibit, cocktails, and a brief WHS annual meeting, Professor Vernal will share highlights of her research and bring the story “home” with a discussion of Windsor’s many West Indian connections and opportunities for expanding the exhibit. This is an indoor/outdoor event with indoor-only face masks and social distancing required. Admission $5 adults/free for Society members. Rain date: June 30.
