    New exhibits based on the recent program by Board Members Marian O'Keefe and Carolyn Ivanoff, on
     the life of Ebenezer D Bassett, our country's first African-American ambassador. Born in Litchfield but brought up in Derby and Seymour, he served in "Hayti" from 1869 to the 1870's. Also, we have a 
    second display on the "Black Governors," or community leaders, of Derby and Seymour.  Ebenezer's father and grandfather were Black Governors of Derby. These exhibits can be seen before and after our regular Sunday programs or by appointment, 203-888-7471

    Please visit the sites of our Historical Society partners - local Historical Societies with whom we enjoy close relationships,
    and who have great programs and collections of their own.
