SHERMAN, Conn. – The elderly woman stares straight ahead with a stern expression as she clutches her shawl.
Her hair is caught up in a black band and her clothing is simple, yet she was apparently important enough for someone to be making her portrait.
But who is she? What is her role in Sherman’s past?
The local historical society will reveal all, and more, this Saturday, June 11, at its annual “Our Indian Heritage” open house.
The event runs from 1-4 p.m. at the Northrop House Museum, the society’s home, located at 10 Route 37.
Cookies and lemonade will be served.
The public is invited to picnic on the grounds and stroll through the Mallory Preserve.
The museum is open from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays throughout the summer.
