Join us as local expert, Tricia Staley, introduces you to the families who lived in the mansions along Washington St. and Broadway – Norwich’s Millionaires’ Triangle – in the last half of the 19th century when Norwich was a wealthy manufacturing center whose residents drew the attention of people across the nation.
