Little Known Sights in Connecticut, Part 1

September 7, 2015

Unbeknownst to me until a few weeks ago, the famous abolitionist John Brown was born in Connecticut. Born in 1800 in Torrington, Connecticut, he was best known for the raid he led on the Federal arsenal in Harper’s Ferry, VA (for which he was hanged for treason).

His home burnt down in 1918, but a small portion of the foundation exists, along with a monument to mark the location.  You can see both in the photo below.
