Glastonbury - New Historical Society of Glastonbury Museum on the Green Exhibit: Hale Family
Posted on: 2015-06-02
When: On display until November 2015. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays 9:00am - 4:00pm, and the third Sunday of every month 1:00pm - 4:00pm.
Where: Museum on the Green 1944 Main Street Glastonbury, CT 06033
What: Passed down to the last male descendent of Francis Hale, the Hale family is one of the more prominent families known throughout the history of Glastonbury. The Hale family descends from Samuel Hale, one of the founders of Hartford. Samuel was one of the original settlers, immigrating before 1635. He was a proprietor of Naubuc Farms, the name of the first settled area of Glastonbury (the six miles along the river going three miles inland, to where Three Mile Road is today.) Samuel's son was one of the first settlers. Francis Oliver Hale was raised in South Glastonbury. He was one of many men from Glastonbury who fought for the Union and came home alive. Gilbert "Buzzy" Hale is currently a resident of Granby, Connecticut and also the great-grandson of Francis Oliver Hale who has long been interested in his family's genealogy. The Historical Society of Glastonbury's newest exhibit is a glimpse into early American culture and the objects in this new exhibit were passed down to "Buzzy" by his father and grandfather. Some of these interesting artifacts include spent bullets from a battlefield where Francis Oliver Hale fought (Port Hudson, 1863) and a straight razor Francis received in trade for chewing tobacco from a Confederate soldier. Admission to the Museum on the Green is free.
