Our Community at Winchester: An Elm City Story

Our traveling exhibit about workers at the U.S. Repeating Arms Company in New Haven in the 20th century, has moved to the Stetson Branch of the New Haven Free Public Library, 200 Dixwell Avenue, where it will be on display through February 28th. The library is located in the heart of the Dixwell-Newhallville Community, where many of the company's employees and their families lived.

If you haven't yet seen the exhibit, this is an excellent opportunity! There is ample free parking at the back of the library.
