Remembering David Ransom

Conversations on Historic Preservation

November 3, 2017

For more than 40 years, beginning in 1967, David Ransom championed the cause of historic preservation. As a writer, scholar, teacher, National Register surveyor, advocate, Stowe Center trustee and friend, he blazed a trail that enriched Hartford and the Connecticut he loved.


With Ransom’s recent passing at the age of 100, historians and preservationists gather to discuss his impact. The event is free and open to the public.
