Frog Hollow : Stories from an American Neighborhood, Paperback / softback Book

Frog Hollow : Stories from an American Neighborhood Paperback / softback

Part of the Garnet Books series


Frog Hollow: Stories from an American Neighborhood is a collection of colorful historical vignettes of an ethnically diverse neighborhood just west of the Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford.

Its 1850s row houses have been home to a wide variety of immigrants.

During the Revolutionary War, Frog Hollow was a progressive hub, and later, in the mid-late 19th century, it was a hotbed of industry.

Reporter Susan Campbell tells the true stories of Frog Hollow with a primary focus on the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries: the inventors, entrepreneurs and workers, as well as the impact of African American migration to Hartford, the impact of the Civil Rights movement and the continuing fight for housing.
