Hartford, CT - On Tuesday, June 27 Connecticut’s Old State House’s next installment of
Conversations at Noon will reflect on the work and legacy of historian, preservationist, author and one of Hartford’s most devoted, visionary and engaging champions – the late Wilson (Bill) H. Faude.
Known for his creative and enthusiastic promotion of Hartford’s history, Mr. Faude oversaw the restoration of two iconic Hartford landmarks - the Mark Twain House and Connecticut’s Old State House. He also authored numerous books relating to Connecticut history, including The Hidden History of Connecticut and The Renaissance of Mark Twain’s House.

The Connecticut Network’s (CT-N) Diane Smith will lead a conversation about Faude’s work, impact on our capital city’s landscape, and the enormous passion and civic pride he felt for Hartford, its historic gems and its stories. Smith will be joined by Architectural Historian Jared Edwards, who worked on restoration projects with Mr. Faude, Historian Bill Hosley, and Columnist Tom Condon.

This program is free to attend thanks to the support of Connecticut Humanities.
