All of us at New London Landmarks are proud of the work we've done these past few years, including collaborating with the City of New London on the Black Heritage Trail, showcasing HOPE's work on historic Belden Street, helping the developer of 38 Green Street qualify for funding, and finishing our work on Linwood Bland, Jr.'s former house on 23 Franklin Street.
We're also excited about our plans for 2022: a talk by Barbara Nagy and Rick Gipstein on New London architect Dudley St. Clair Donnelly's work, a documentary film by Constance Kristofik on the history of New London's LGBTQ community, and a talk on Shepherd's Tent and the Great Awakening by historian and author Thomas S. Kidd. We're also collaborating with the City of New London and community leaders on a plaque and ceremony acknowledging New London's role in the transatlantic slave trade. This summer we will begin researching the history of public housing in New London in preparation for a 2023 program.
Most of all, we're grateful to the people and businesses who've supported our work, especially over the last few years when we canceled most of our in-person programs. This year we plan on seeing more of you in person!
Thank you for supporting our work and being part of our preservation community.
