Another post in my ‘Connecticut Roadside History’ series. A friend and I were cycling around the hills of Connecticut’s northwest corner today and we came across this tree. The sign reads ‘Centennial Tree planted 1876’ Falls Village-Canaan Historical Society. The 142 year old tree looked good for its age. While I know there were Centennial Trees planted throughout the state, and also in many towns individually, to commemorate our nations 100th birthday, I can’t say with certainty the history behind this specific tree. If I recall correctly, it is located on Music Mountain Road. Stay tuned for updates.
