'Went to a Garden Party . . .'

The Antiquarian & Landmarks Society will host an evening of music, art, and history at the Butler-McCook House & Garden on Thursday, July 5, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The Butler-McCook property, at 396 Main Street in Hartford, was home to four generations of a family integral to the evolution of Main Street between the American Revolution and the mid-20th Century. ALS, which maintains seven historic properties around Connecticut in addition to the Butler-McCook property, invites you to "sit back and relax after work in a beautiful garden with a glass of wine, shot of tequila, soft drink, and light appetizers." There's a $2 suggested donation per drink, but otherwise the event is free. That includes a first-floor tour of the house, acoustic music by Judy Handler and Mark Levesque, and the opening of an exhibition: "Botanical Explorations in Watercolor: The Artwork of Betsy Rogers-Knox."
