Michael Alberts, President and CEO of Jewett City Savings Bank announced that the Jewett City Savings Bank Foundation awarded a grant to the Aspinock Historical Society.
The Aspinock Historical Society was established in 1972 by Putnam residents to conserve the town’s local and regional history. Presently, it operates as both a research center and a museum, offering guided tours and illustrated lectures on local and national history. The donation will help the historical society replace the railroad ties under the Gertrude Chandler Warner Boxcar Children Museum. The Boxcar Children Museum, located in Putnam, CT pays homage to Putnam native Gertrude Chandler Warner, original author of The Boxcar Children series of books.
“As a result of the Aspinock Historical Society’s dedication, the local community can retell stories and further educate neighbors on the historical importance of the community they live in. We are thrilled to help support the historical society and their dedication to keeping the community’s history alive,” said Alberts.
