The Ridgefield Historical Society has announced a series of Last Sundays at the Scott House, a chance for people who’d like to learn more about the organization and its 1714 headquarters to visit outside of the regular open hours (Tuesday-Thursday, 1-5 p.m.).
Each event, from 1 to 4 p.m. on the last Sundays of January through April, will include a special program, starting with docent-led tours of the Scott House on Jan. 26 at 2 and 3 p.m., during which guests will learn about the building’s history (it survived two moves) and how it has been adapted for its current use.
On Feb. 23 at 3 p.m., Dr. Darla Shaw will present her interpretation of Alice Paul, a leader in the woman suffrage movement who lived for many years in Ridgefield. The program for March 29 will also be part of the year-long celebration of Votes for Women: At 3 p.m., Andy Forsyth, assistant director of the Ridgefield Library will moderate a discussion of The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote by Elaine Weiss.
Program reservations are requested: visit ridgefieldhistoricalsociety.org or 203-438-5821. For the March 29th discussion, visit ridgefieldlibrary.org.
The Ridgefield Historical Society is at 4 Sunset Lane, just off Grove Street.
