A Discovery of ‘Mammut’ Proportions

Our Town,  a series of  six programs on local history,  sponsored jointly by Friends of the Farmington Library and the Farmington Heritage Alliance continues this Sunday, January 20, 2012  at 2:00pm with "A Discovery of ‘Mammut’ Proportions."

Hill-Stead Museum is known for its architecture, French Impressionist art, Poetry Festival, and Farmer’s Market; but not many know of the museum’s prehistoric connections of the “Mammut” kind.  Learn about the 1913 unearthing of an American Mastodon skeleton on the Pope estate, view reproduction photographs of the original find, and discover the differences between a mastodon and its distant cousin the Woolly Mammoth.  

The program will be presented by Hill-Stead Museum in the Community Room of the Main Farmington Library.
