Center Church Archives and Library Tour
Join Bill Hosley and church historian Robin Roy for a behind-the-scenes tour and collection workshop of the library and archives at Center Church in Hartford. It’s Connecticut’s first and best purpose-built church archive/library. It contains many rare treasures of great local importance. Rev. Joel Hawes (1789-1867) personal library is a national treasure. Nothing like it survives for another important leader in the 2nd Great Awakening.
