Grant for Cedar Hill

January 20, 2016

Rep. Edwin Vargas is pleased that the Connecticut Humanities Council recently awarded a $1,500 grant to the Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation in Hartford.

“I thank the Connecticut Humanities Council for awarding this grant to Hartford,” Rep. Vargas said. “It’s important that we offer programs that enrich our understanding of our city’s and region’s history and the grant helps to make it happen.”

The grant supports a four-part series to be staged by Cedar Hill and the Bushnell Park Foundation. The series kicks off on April 23 at 6:00 p.m. with a free panel discussion on 19th Century Hartford at the Hartford Public Library.
