Historic designation for Fairfield Avenue

Congratulations to the Fairfield Avenue Neighbors Association for getting Fairfield Avenue designated a National Historic District. To celebrate, the Association will hold a ceremony and social gathering at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 2, at the Memorial Baptist Church, at 142 Fairfield Avenue. Mayor Pedro Segarra and state Senator John Fonfara are slated to give remarks.

The National Register of Historic Places offers this list of other places in Hartford County to win Historic District designation. (Sorry, the Register doesn't give a breakdown by town or city.)
