History Bites Lecture Series Bearing Bad News: A History of Waterbury’s Supposed Whipping Post

May 3 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

A controversy erupts in the summer of 2017 over an object on the
Waterbury Green. This bizarre, metal-capped wooden pillar has stood
on the Green for as long as anyone can remember. But what is it?
Why is it there? Mr. Dostie will explore what the history of the post––
by turns romanticized, vilified, and largely ignored––can tell us about
how the city perceives itself and how we tell the story of our past.
Bring your own bagged lunch. Cookies and lemonade provided.
