									   Connecticut Industrial Heritage Sites
           Visitable Attractions
Most of our local historical orgs cited below - are cited below - because they have
SUBSTANTIAL content on display related to this subject. Most local historicals
have some things. A few have quite a few - those listed below are
SUBSTANTIAL in what they have to show and tell.

I am sure there is more that we've overlooked - so PLEASE - suggest things you
see missing - though its best if they're visitable attractions and not just
industrial buildings or historic districts that aren't interpreted.

East Haddam has a wonderful industrial history agenda in progress - not sure if
its accessible yet. New Haven Museum sure has the potential as does the
Barnum Museum in Bridgeport. A good trail is about stuff the public can see
NOW - and can be refined as it goes along - indeed, will inspire folks to develop
their content!

The way these things work - I having a legislator champion - from one of OUR
sites - gung ho about making this Trail concept a project - might be all it takes.

It would be invaluable to the marketing of this history AND to the continuing
visibility and prestige of the industrial technology sector.
