Forever young at 90

The Greenwich Historical Society at 90.

The Greenwich Historical Society turns 90 this year in a big way. It’s “Discover Greenwich” series of interactive programs will introduce participants to the diverse history, architecture and neighborhoods of the town. A cocktail party on May 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. will give you a chance to say a proper “Happy Birthday.” And from Oct. 19 through Jan. 22, the society will at long last present the Covid-delayed “Life and Art: The Greenwich Paintings of John Henry Twachtman,” an exploration of one of the finest American Impressionist painters and a member of the Cos Cob Art Colony that found a summer home at the society’s Bush-Holley House. (We can’t wait to plumb the catalog by Lisa N. Peters.) 

But you don’t have to wait until then to enjoy the society’s offerings. Today (Thursday, April 7) from 6 to 7:15 p.m. Maisa Tisdale, president and CEO of The Mary & Eliza Freeman Center for History and Community, will give a virtual talk about “Bridgeport’s Little Liberia and the Importance of African American Historic Preservation.”
