Hartford, CT - Connecticut Landmarks recently celebrated over 75 years of preserving and presenting the very best of Connecticut history with an End-of-Summer Garden Party at the Butler-McCook House & Garden in downtown Hartford. The evening, hosted by FOX-CT Anchor and Host Erika Arias, featured a classic New England summer menu using fresh ingredients from local sources presented by Max Catering. Guests enjoyed distinctive wines by Hartford Distributors, Inc. and Spiritus, beer by City Steam Brewery, music by the Street Vipers, and a silent auction and art auction featuring “renewal” themed works.

The event raised over $11,000 to support educational youth programming at Connecticut Landmarks’ Hartford properties, including the Amos Bull House - one of four remaining 18th century buildings in Hartford which will soon house CT Landmark's administrative offices, archives and essential program and community education space.
