The Monroe Historical Society presents  the “Good Old Days” Sunday, November 6 at 2 pm at the Meetinghouse.  The Meetinghouse is located at the corner of Barn Hill Road and East Village Road in Monroe, CT.

Dateline 1890…

The buffalo was almost gone from the plains, historians were claiming the frontier was closed, “Honest Grover” Cleveland was in the White House and people were singing “Daisy, Daisy, Give Me your Answer True” as immigrants were flocking to America and  businesses were booming!

Join us for a lecture by Gordon Williams, a retired History teacher who loves to spin a historic tale as he gives us the scoop on how Americans, both rural and urban, lived in the Good Old Days of 1890.
