City of Middletown, 1931 List of Real Property, tabulated by street.
This extremely rare item will be useful to anyone wishing to find the history of a location in Middletown, or trace their own family's residence there. This listing has names, addresses, and valuations -- and it even includes outbuildings! Here's a sample page of this historical document -- click the image to see it full-sized -- you may also need to click the enlarged image to see the high-resolution page image full-sized:
"Middletown" in the Connecticut Quarterly of 1898.
20 pages, with numerous photographs. A good summary of the history of the community until the dawn of the 20th century. The pictures are memorable.
The 1947 Cauldron of Middletown High School.
Not exactly politically correct by contemporary standards, this is a great trip down memory lane for old MHS grads -- and an eye-opener about local history for more recent ones as well. 96 pages, including some great ads. A list of the members of the 1947 MHS graduating class appears below. A separate addendum to the Cauldron of 1947 is also included.
Chamber of Commerce brochure, circa 1922.
This historical 16 page brochure is designed to paint the city in a good light, and it does. It's interesting to find out just what the civic fathers considered to be selling points 85 years ago. Several photos in this one, too.
Several smaller items of historical ephemera, including a large number of old post card views of Middletown in the early 20th century (roughly half are of Wesleyan while the rest are of other Middletown landmarks), the (disappointingly smallish) program for the Middletown Tercentenary (1650 - 1950), much Middletown-related material from the Connecticut State Register and Manual for 1927, the article on Middletown from The Connecticut Guide, some century old topographic maps of the Middletown quadrangle, and even a dance card from the 1947 Middletown HS Junior prom. Quite a collection!
