S-WH Receives TWO 2023 Awards of Merit

The Connecticut League of History Organizations Awards Museum for a Publication and an Original Play

Stanley-Whitman House was recently given the distinction of receiving not one but two 2023 Awards of Merit from the Connecticut League of History Organizations.

The first award is for Memento Mori, Farmington, Connecticut – Remember Death, the Museum’s first book and publication about this ancient burial ground authored by Kate Linsley-Rodgers with research organized by Betty Coykendall, Sherra Palmer, and the late Paul Kramer.

The second award was given for “The Last Night,” an original play commissioned and produced by the Museum’s Mary Barnes Society to mark the 360th anniversary of the end of the accusations, persecution, and hanging for witchcraft in the Connecticut Colony.
