This week Christine and I spent a few hours at the Mattatuck Museum Arts and History Center. The quality and diversity of the exhibits at this regional cultural center are excellent. One that stood out was an exhibit of one of our "locals" - Clara Leighton - a leading wood engraver of the 20th century:
To learn more about Clara you can visit the Mattatuck Museum. To experience the world of Old Woodbury (currently the towns of Southbury, Woodbury, Bethlehem and Washington) that inspired her, stay with us at Cornucopia at Oldfield Bed and Breakfast. WE will be glad to tell you about so many other fascinating locals who have contributed to our culture - from Wallace Nutting and Samuel Goodrich ("Peter Parley") to more recent writers like Gladys Taber (columnist for Lady's Home Journal) and Ann Vileises (environmetnal historian).
