It served as Harwinton's only library until 1989 when the Harwinton Public Library on Bentley Drive was built. The Hungerford Library is now a wonderful museum which is open May-October on Saturdays, from 2-4 PM or by appointment.

Gurrie Rhoads has a copy of a book written in 1909 by E. Leroy Pond entitled The Tories of Chippeny Hill, Connecticut. It has been a valuable resource tool for me and might be for others as well. It deals primarily with the Tory families of the Harwinton area. Some names: Brooks, Graves, Nichols, Dunbar, Porter, Holcomb, Jerome, Jones, Matthews, Royce, Roe, Tuttle, Hickox, Gaylord, Rice, and others. I know that a copy of this book is already in the Bristol library, but perhaps I can look up information for those who can't get there.
