Add this Event to Calendar 02/09/2021 07:00 PM 02/09/2021 07:00 PM Woodbury: a Town with Unusual Names


Join award-winning historian Susan Shepard for an entertaining look at the unusual names of places in Woodbury and the history behind them.

In this virtual event find out why, for example, was Woodbury’s Hazel Plain district once known as “Hell Hollow” and what popular walking area was dubbed “Dirty Slough” in colonial days?  Learn where the “Ram Pit” was and what was it used for.  The history that interests Susan most is digging out and documenting the forgotten history of everyday people, starting with Woodbury in 1672, and how the area towns got not just their wonderful historical features but the peculiar things that happened along the way to help shape the towns we know today.
