Grant to fund pop-up exhibit


NAUGATUCK — The Naugatuck Historical Society received a $1,470 grant from Connecticut Humanities to develop and market a pop-up exhibit at its temporary location.

The historical society is temporarily operating its museum from a storefront at 171 Church St. The society, which used to be located at the train station on Water Street, plans to eventually establish a permanent home at the Tuttle House on Church Street.

The grant money will be used to create a pop-up exhibit to feature Naugatuck history in four sections: Naugatuck in pictures, Salem Bridge clocks, Naugatuck Savings Bank, and Do You Remember — a rotating selection of artifacts, according to a press release.

Connecticut Humanities is a nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities that administers a competitive grant pool.
