Event Details

Born in Ridgefield on January 10, 1841, Connecticut’s 53rd Governor grew up on a local farm still operating today as ‘The Hickories.’  Phineas was a successful banker and lifelong opponent of ‘strong drink,’ so it’s likely that his birthday celebrations were centered on family, cake and ‘two-step dancing,’ of which he was said to be a fan!

On this special day, we thank you for your support to preserve Lounsbury’s beautiful 19th century community Landmark & gathering place for many of our areas most memorable events.
