Historic Quilt To Be Featured In Shelton Library Programs

The Plumb Memorial Library in Shelton will be hosting a four-part series of programs celebrating Shelton’s past through the renowned Shelton Bicentennial Quilt. 

The series will begin Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. and run for four weeks.

The program is co-sponsored by the Plumb Memorial Public Library and the Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter, NSDAR.

The Bicentennial Quilt contains 44 squares in a quilt about 112 inches wide and 71 inches long. It was created in 1976 to show a history of Shelton over the years. It will be used to depict the four topics of the series: the history of recreation, farming, manufacturing and transportation.

Light refreshments will be served and registration is required.
