Witches in Connecticut

October 20 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

With Peter Vermilyea

It is indisputable that our Litchfield County ancestors believed that they lived alongside witches. In most cases, the women who were accused of witchcraft fell outside what society expected from their gender. In this talk, author and historian Peter Vermilyea will discuss the lives of four 18th century residents of Litchfield County who were accused of witchcraft, their alleged activities and the possible motivations behind the accusations.

In person (if possible) or Zoom
