Christopher Miner Spencer is well known for the automatic screw machine he patented in 1873, and he had a lifelong fascination with steam-powered automobiles and boats, tinkering with his own vehicles although he didn’t patent them. The exhibit includes letters, photos, portraits, poems, patents, arms, and more. We invite you to enjoy refreshments with us and learn about this fascinating man and his life in Windsor. At 6 p.m., Curator Kristen Wands will read from Vesta Spencer Taylor’s personal reminiscences about her father, illustrating the presentation with images from Windsor Historical Society collections. The cost for this program is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and FREE to Windsor Historical Society members. Visit windsorhistoricalsociety.org or contact us at 860-688-3813 for more information.
