Caroline Ferriday, last resident of Connecticut Landmarks’s Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden in Bethlehem, Connecticut worked tirelessly to help women who had been victims of Nazi atrocities. Our story was written by New York Times bestselling author Martha Hall Kelly, whose historical novels Lilac Girls and Lost Roses were inspired by Ferriday and her mother.
Other stories in the issue explore genealogy, a recent project to document Native Americans and African Americans buried in Hartford’s colonial-era burying ground, Liz Petry’s saga of tracking down family myths and legends, and the story about how the national Boys & Girls Clubs organization was started right here in Connecticut.
