Calling All Residents with Tolland Photos

Tolland Town Historian Barbara Cook is looking for photographs to complement historical exhibits for the Tolland Historical Society.

Do you have some old class photos from the Hicks Memorial School? How about a list of former girl scout troop members from town?

If you do, make sure to contact Town Historian Barbara Cook, who needs photos to complete local historical exhibits.

Cook explained that the Tolland Historical Society has a wealth of information in some areas, but is also contending with huge gaps in records. For example, she has six to seven copies of certain class photographs from Hicks Memorial School, but will also have a 20 year gap without any materials.

She said she is also looking for photographs depicting a variety of events and places including photos of school interiors, graduations and Sunday school picnics. 

Residents can either bring them to the museum to be scanned and returned, or can email them to Cook at society@tollandhistorical.org.

This is great! We have been hoping to see some old pictures of our neighborhood on Dockerel rd. I'm looking forward to this.
