The town of Vernon, and especially its historic community of Rockville, CT. is having an exhibit at the BPOE Elks Club, 9 North Park Rd. I have three photos on display. The landscapes, architecture, waterscapes, and cultural diversity are varied and sometimes unique for such a small factory town.
Rockville is the original beginning to Vernon. It is along the Hockanum River, which lent itself to a very active factory presence at the turn of the 20th century. Many of those factories are still standing. Rockville has seen many transformations as businesses came and went. Today there is a renaissance going on in the Rockville section of Vernon. It is worth a trip, especially at this time of the year. Walking down the sidewalks, the many Victorian style homes have been restored, and the flowering trees in every yard create a lovely colorful landscape.
My photos that will be in the exhibit:
Vernon Landscapes - Lupines at Bread and Milk Rd.
Vernon People - Sledding Family At Henry Park
It should be an interesting exhibit.
