Connecticut Lore: Strange, Off Kilter and Full of Surprises

Zack Lamonthe will take you on a tour traveling to the far-reaching corners of the state to discover Branford’s Thimble Islands and the Beckley Furnace in Canaan.

Learn about larger-than-life characters like the legendary strongman Elmer Bitgood and the dead-and-ghostly religious zealot Jemima Wilkinson. Discover that Connecticut is “full of surprises” and worth investigating whether you’re a local or an out-of-towner.

Zack Lamonthe studied New England history and folklore while a student at Boston University, attaining a degree in American Studies. He earned a Master’s Degree in Special Education at Southern Connecticut State University and has taught high school special education and history.
