Join authors Alain Munkittrick and Deborah Shapiro for a discussion about the history of High Street that led to the publication of their book, Middletown’s High Street & Wesleyan University.
Middletown’s High Street and the Wesleyan University (founded 1831) campus that today occupies much of its length reflect the history of Middletown, Connecticut, founded in 1650. As the town became a busy port engaged in the West Indies trade, mariners, clergy, and academy teachers populated the street. The spectacular views of the Connecticut River below encouraged the building of spacious homes that are now part of the Wesleyan campus. As the campus expanded, academic and fraternal club buildings were erected on the street, notably its famous “Brownstone Row.” Many famous personages, such as Washington, Lafayette, President Taft, Gertrude Stein, and then Senator Barack Obama, have visited High Street.

Middletown’s High Street & Wesleyan University
Thursday, April 15th at 7PM
Join authors Alain Munkittrick and Deborah Shapiro on Thursday, April 15th at 7PM for a discussion about the history of High Street that led to the publication of their book, Middletown’s High Street & Wesleyan University.
Middletown’s High Street and the Wesleyan University (founded 1831) campus that today occupies much of its length reflect the history of Middletown, Connecticut, founded in 1650. As the town became a busy port engaged in the West Indies trade, mariners, clergy, and academy teachers populated the street. During the Industrial Revolution, the founders of Russell Manufacturing Co., Wilcox, Crittenden & Co., and Starr Arms called High Street home. The spectacular views of the Connecticut River below encouraged the building of spacious homes of the latest architectural design that are now part of the Wesleyan campus. As the campus expanded, academic and fraternal club buildings were erected on the street, notably its famous “Brownstone Row.” Many famous personages, such as Washington, Lafayette, President Taft, Gertrude Stein, and then Senator Barack Obama, have visited High Street.
Alain Munkittrick, an architect and Wesleyan graduate, served on the Wesleyan Landmarks Advisory Board and as President of the Greater Middletown Preservation Trust. Deborah Shapiro, a graduate of Connecticut College and the University of Connecticut School of Law, is the past Executive Director of the Middlesex County Historical Society and currently the Municipal Historian for the City of Middletown.
The presentation will be held via Zoom. Registration is required to receive the link. For additional information, please contact Denise Mackey-Russo at (860) 347-2520 X164.
