Photos from our Walktober walk on the historic Clark property

We had a grand time on a beautiful afternoon, October 23, when the Canterbury Historical Society hosted a Walktober walk on the historic Captain John Clark property on South Canterbury Road. Many thanks to all who volunteered, especially to Dr. Nick Bellantoni, Connecticut’s State Archeologist Emeritus, for leading the informative walk to and from the river, and to property owner Silas Kinsey for inviting us all to have a close-up look of the much-admired house and landscape.
