Stockbridge, MA–Expert Honey Tasting @ Berkshire Botanical Garden
Mar 7 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Every taste of honey is an opportunity to learn something about its floral source, region and even the beekeeper’s practices. Tasting and evaluating honey is a skill learned through formal sensory training along with experience. Join honey connoisseur and beekeeper, Carla Marina Marchese, to learn the methods of sensory analysis used by sommeliers to taste and evaluate honey like an expert. The art of honey tasting is as complex as skills used by a wine or olive oil sommelier. If you are looking to improve your knowledge of honey and your tasting skills you should attend this workshop, which is appropriate for those who appreciate honey and beekeepers alike. Copies of The Honey Connoisseur will be available for purchase and signing by Marina.

Carla Marina Marchese is a member of the Italian National Register of Experts in the Sensory Analysis of Honey, where she received her formal training. Her book, The Honey Connoisseur, co-authored with Kim Flottum (editor of Bee Culture Magazine), parallels the concept of terroir to single-origin honey, directly matching floral sources to flavors, and conceived the first U.S. honey aroma and flavor wheel. In 2011, Marina established The American Honey Tasting Society as the leading resource for honey sensory education in the United States. An accomplished apiculturist, Marina has also successfully completed the Charles Mraz Apitherapy Course, deepening her understanding of products of the beehive and their applications to health and healing. Marchese is also the founder of the beloved brand of Red Bee honey.

Advance registration is highly recommended, but walk-ins are welcome, space permitting.

Monterey, MA– History Talk Replay— “O Bubble blast, how long can’st last?” An Unhappy Marriage in Puritan Boston @ Monterey Community Center
Mar 8 @ 1:00 pm

The Bidwell House Museum, in collaboration with the Monterey Community Center, is excited to again present the off-season program “History Talk Replay”. Join friends and neighbors at the Monterey Community Center on one Sunday afternoon in January, February and March to view a broadcast of one of our popular summer History Talks. The last lecture in the series will be held on Sunday March 8 at 1pm and is a talk from 2019 titled “O Bubble blast, how long can’st last?” An Unhappy Marriage in Puritan Boston. The History Talk Replay series is free, but donations are welcome.

In this talk by author Allegra DiBonaventura, hear the remarkable story of the marriage of Edward and Hannah Lane in 1650s Boston. Hannah, a wealthy heiress and child abandoned by her divorced parents, was just seventeen when she married Edward, a merchant twenty years her senior. But it only took a few disastrous days in the marital bed for her to realize that her marriage simply would not work. In a world where wives were expected to be obedient “helpmeets” with few legal rights exclusive of their husbands, Hannah had the audacity to sue for annulment, only to change her mind within two years. Seeking the domestic bliss that had eluded her parents would lead her take on the puritan legal establishment, and her ultimate triumph would be as improbable as it was extraordinary.

Allegra di Bonaventura is the Associate Director for Graduate Programs at Yale Law School. She received a Ph.D. in History from Yale and a J.D. from Yale Law School. Her 2013 book, For Adam’s Sake: A Family Saga in Colonial New England won the New England Historical Association’s James P. Hanlan Book Award and the Association for the Study of Connecticut History’s Homer D. Babbidge Award. It was named a Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year (2013).

Torrington, CT–CT History Day (Torrington Regional Contest) @ Torrington High School
Mar 14 all-day

Connecticut History Day is a program for students in grades 6-12 that encourages exploration of local, state, national, and world history. Connecticut History Day is one of 58 affiliate programs of the highly regarded National History Day program.

After selecting a historical topic that relates to an annual theme, students conduct extensive research using libraries, archives, museums, and oral history interviews. Students analyze and interpret their findings, draw conclusions about their topic’s significance in history, and create final projects that demonstrate their work.

Student History Day projects are judged by teams of volunteer judges. All judging at History Day is done on a consensus basis and judges’ decisions are final. Judges are recruited from the local community; they are educators, historians, curators, video producers, writers, lawyers, and business people with a love of history and education.

Salisbury, CT–Era of Elegance: Lenox’s Ventfort Hall: Elegant Country Refuge of Morgans and Vanderbilt @ Scoville Memorial Library
Mar 21 @ 4:00 pm

Cosponsored by the Community Events Committee of the Salisbury Association

Ventfort Hall’s lively Jacobean roofline with crenellations, decorative chimneys, and magnificent curved gables have added Old World elegance to the staid New England landscape in Lenox since 1891. The estate -including two gate houses and a grand carriage house was built for members of the Morgan family once rooted in Hartford. The buildings were designed by Boston architects Rotch & Tilden and the landscape by John Huss, later President of the Connecticut Horticultural Society. After the Morgans’ day Ventfort’s paneled rooms were play places for young Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt and his bother George after their father’s death on the Lusitania.
Drawing on years of research on Lenox country houses Cornelia Brooke Gilder brings alive the Ventfort story using letters and photographs from old family albums. She has participated over the past twenty years in the rescue of this doomed landmark by the Ventfort Hall Association and its new life as Lenox’s Museum of the Gilded Age.

She also has contributed to two architectural guidebooks to Albany, NY where she worked with the New York State Preservation Office early in her career. At the Clark Art Institute in 2005 she was co-curator of “A Walk in the Country: Inness and the Berkshires” and at the Mount of a current exhibit on Edith Wharton’s husband, Teddy.

Salisbury, CT–The Fight for Women’s Suffrage in Connecticut, presented by Ilene Frank, Chief Curator of the Connecticut Historical Society @ Scoville Memorial Library
Mar 28 @ 4:00 pm

In collaboration with the Salisbury Association Historical Society

2020 marks only the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote nationwide. As in many other states the women of Connecticut worked tirelessly and seemingly endlessly to achieve this goal. Ilene Frank will use items from the CHS collection including photographs, letters, pamphlets, and newspaper headlines to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. You’ll learn about suffragists like Katharine Houghton Hepburn, Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some Connecticut women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote.

Ilene Frank is the Connecticut Historical Society’s Chief Curator overseeing exhibitions, education, collections, state-wide folklife program and marketing for the museum and library.

The Connecticut Historical Society, Connecticut’s official historical society, is a private, nonprofit, educational organization established in 1825. Located in Hartford, the institution is home to a museum and library of state history, the Edgar F. Waterman Research Center, and the Connecticut Cultural Heritage Arts Program – the state’s official folk and traditional arts initiative. All are open to the public and funded by private contributions. The organization’s historical collection includes more than 4 million manuscripts, graphics, books, artifacts, and other materials accessible at its Hartford campus and on loan at other organizations.
