Stanley Moroch discusses the Hurricane of 1938
The Hurricane of 1938 is considered one of the most destructive in New England’s History. Here is a rare account from our Town’s past official Historian. Stanley’s contribution to the preservation of the Town’s history was tremendous. He is missed dearly by those that knew him.

Update on efforts to save the Cogshell Robinson House
We are grateful to the many people who signed our petition to help save the house from demolition. Our effort is now getting support from the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. These two organizations are now actively engaged in helping to save this important Federal style structure as an integral part of the National Registered Village District in Colchester.
If you want to continue to help save this house from demolition, please write a letter of support to: The State Historic Preservation Office, Attention Todd Levine, 450 Columbus Boulevard, Suite 5, Hartford, CT 06103. A hearing in front of the Historic Preservation Council will be held in early September to determine the fate of the house. Your letter to SHPO can make a difference. Thank you.
