Can you help us identify these mystery photos?



The Society is dedicated to preserving Bolton's rich historic past, from its founding in 1720 to the 21st century. We annually award the Evelyn W. Halloran Memorial Scholarship and recently helped erect a Veterans Monument and Honor Roll on the Bolton green. We sponsor an annual "Heritage Day" to educate and involve residents in their town's history.

Please join the Bolton Historical Society in honoring retired Bolton Town Historian Hans DePold for his long service to the town. His research, his hard work, his writing skills, and his two books about Bolton, are just some of the things for which we are honoring him.

Please make checks payable to 'Bolton Historical Society' and mail as soon as possible to: Bolton Historical Society, 45 Hebron Road, Bolton, CT 06043.

Hans DePold has uncovered some photos of Bolton's WWII Early Warning Towers.
