The Wallingford Historical Society is rescheduling our canceled program from July to Thursday, September 21, 2023 at 7 pm at the Town Hall. It is the presentation on The Covered Bridges of Nicholas Powers.  A. Nicholas Strom-Olsen, the great, great, great grandson of famous covered bridge builder, Nicholas Powers, will be presenting the program. You will not want to miss this interesting session.  Some of you may have remembered the covered bridge on Rt. 140 that was burned down intentionally in 1949 by the American Legion as it had become too small and not strong enough to accommodate our modern traffic.

We need your support by attending our presentations so that more can be offered in the future.  This is part of the history of your community.  You will hear about the people that made Wallingford.
