Library, Torrington, Connecticut

[LIB8036] The building that houses the Library today on Daycoeton Place was constructed in 1900 with funds donated by another highly influential and respected donor, Mr. Elisha Turner.  At the dedication ceremony on September 11, 1901, Yale professor Bernadotte Perrin said, “A Library in a community is a fountain of ennobling influence.  A memorial such as the one left by Mr. Turner will live forever and this community will have long memory for Lauren Wetmore and Elisha Turner.” [Website]
