Description: They called the steep valley of Connecticut’s Naugatuck River, "Brass Valley,” because from the time the world began running on steam and bearings, trolleys and soot, the Naugatuck Valley came to be where most of the world’s brass manufacturing happened. Learn how Litchfield’s industrial neighbors came to be as author Emery Roth II shares experiences and discoveries made while photographing his book, Brass Valley: The Fall of an American Industry. Lecture followed by Q&A and book signing.
