Tapping Reeve House and Litchfield Law School
Monday, September 20
Click here for sign up sheet

 
Be sure to join the Woman’s Club for its new season and to be eligible to join us on our first day trip. We will go to Litchfield for “The Noblest Study: The Legacy of the Litchfield Law School.”
 
Between 1774 and 1833 Tapping Reeve and his partner James Gould revolutionized the way law was taught in this country, educating over 1000 young men who became leaders in law, politics, education and business.  They were the sons and grandsons of the men who fought in the revolution and wrote the constitution, and these young men took it as their duty and responsibility to make the document work.  Our tour will bring to life experiences of students at America’s first formal school of law.  For just $7.00, discover what brought young men to study in Litchfield and how politics, society and education came together. https://www.litchfieldhistoricalsociety.org/museums/tapping-reeve-house-and-law-school/.  Unvaccinated visitors are asked to wear masks.
 
Lunch will follow a short drive into Litchfield Center at The Village Restaurant.  https://village-litchfield.com/
 
We will leave the clubhouse upper parking lot at 9:45 a.m. for the half hour drive to our one hour 10:30 a.m. tour.  Please be prepared to give your driver $2 in cash toward fuel.  To join us, by Thursday, September 16 please print and complete the coupon below (or write out your own) and put it in the drop box at the MA office with your $7 check made payable to FWWC.  You may also mail them to Anne Fitzgerald, 51 Byron Drive, Avon, CT 06001.
