NEW WALK NEW HAVEN TOUR COMING SOON!!!
Beginning in Fall 2019, three Southern Connecticut State University Journalism students, Hunter Lyle, Alfredo Rivera and Faith Williams have helped the Ethnic Heritage Center on the upcoming tour focusing on the cultural history Old Grand Avenue between East and State Street from the1840’s to the 1960’s. The group of Southern Connecticut State University Journalism students conducted interviews with former business owners and residents of the Grand Avenue neighborhood to help create the content for our next WALK NEW HAVEN: Cultural Heritage Tour publications. Most pictures and resources were found in the Ethnic Heritage Center historical societies’ archives. Anyone with historic pictures or stories of this neighborhood is invited to share them.
