America’s oldest continuously operating ferry service began running between Rocky Hill and Glastonbury in 1655. More than one hundred have operated on the river since the seventeenth century. The stories of the captains, crews and passengers define the history and personality of the region. Learn how Captain Ham Sandwich got his name. Discover the bond between Katharine Hepburn and a real ferry queen, Cathey LaBonte.
Author Wick Griswold will detail the history of these charming anachronisms and why they are still afloat today.

Books will be available for purchase in the Museum Shop.
