The Enduring Legacy of the Leatherman
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Of all the legendary figures who have come through Connecticut, few have had the staying power or notoriety that The Leatherman has achieved.

For six years during the late 1800s, this so-called "hobo" hiked the same, 360-mile, circuitous route every 34 days like clockwork. Residents could predict when he would return to their town. Wearing a self-made suit of leather, from head to toe, he conversed with no one and slept in caves – and we still don't know who he was. But, people loved him.

Hear his story at this presentation by Mike Allen, host and producer of the podcast, Amazing Tales from Off and On Connecticut’s Beaten Path. 

Please register in advance, to reserve your space.
