Silvermine History Dinner
“Before and After: How Silvermine Became an Artists’ Community.” - Please join us on Saturday, November 11th, for an evening of tasty food and storytelling.
Our host, Jerry Gleason, will talk about the period extending from approximately 1897 to 1915. Jerry will focus on how industrial Silvermine became an artist’s community. Included in this history will be many of Jerry’s famous “juicy bits” including polygamy, an abandoned wife, drunken times in old Silvermine, the man who cut off the legs of his wife, and two brothers who hated each other.
Don't delay! Limited to 68 Tickets
WELCOME TO SILVERMINE
Silvermine is a unique Fairfield County, Connecticut neighborhood which is made up of adjoining sections of Norwalk, New Canaan and Wilton. The Silvermine Community Association (SCA) is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization whose membership consists of residents and friends of this beautiful and historic area.
SCA has been active for more than 60 years. The purpose of SCA is to engage in cultural, civic, literary, historic, social, and charitable activities. Established to provide scholarships to resident college-bound students, the SCA sponsors many annual events in support of this. Members enjoy occasional history dinners, neighborhood clean-ups, an annual Potluck dinner and quarterly Silvermine Socials. The Easter Bunny visits our annual Pancake Breakfast, and Santa Claus always arrives on the back of the fire engine to deliver presents to children of SCA members.
