The Mansfield Public Library and the Mansfield Historical Society are co-hosting the Connecticut Invents! program at the Mansfield library on Friday, April 11th at 7:00. This will be a more adult oriented presentation, but kids are most welcome to attend and learn about famous and not so famous Connecticut inventors and inventions. Prior to the program I will be appearing on WILI 1400 AM on Monday April 7th between 7-9 am to chat about our state’s inventive heritage. If you are in the area give a listen on the 7th or stop by the library on the 11th to check out the program.
Mansfield has a rich invention heritage, it’s the birthplace of the screw auger and the original home of the nations first silk mill, built in 1810. Those attending the program are also encouraged to bring their own antique Connecticut inventions for show and tell. Who knows what treasures of Connecticut history might appear….!
