The Prudence Crandall Museum once a school...

Prudence Crandall and Sarah Harris present...

The presentation was called Sisters in the Promised Land and took place in the church located across the street from the old school now a museum. Prudence ran the school and Sarah was her first student. 
 Meet Prudence...

 Meet Sarah...

It was an exciting presentation full of great dialogue! Afterward during a question and answer period three women and one man introduced themselves as being descendants of Sarah Harris.  Lots of hugs followed.

Tea at the Prudence Crandall Museum in Canterbury, CT

On a beautiful November day after a major snow storm the tea ladies met for tea.

The Colonial house at
5 South Canterbury Road
in Canterbury was built around 1765 for John Carter and originally had a full lean-to in the rear. In 1807, Nathan Adams, who operated Canterbury’s oldest corn mill, moved into the house. His son, Rufus Adams, was later a lawyer in town. In the early twentieth century, the town’s post office was located in the rear of the house.
