A presidential portraitist, a two-headed calf and a national landmark that inspires creativity--extraordinary tales abound in Connecticut from Hartford to Bethlehem, from New Haven to Bristol and all points in between. Learn about The Age of Reptiles"--a 110-foot-long, 16-foot-high mural skillfully crafted by painter Rudolph Zallinger at the Peabody Museum in New Haven. Visit the Goodspeed Opera House built along the Connecticut River in 1876. Restored in 1963, this small theater continues to bring East Haddam to Broadway. Experience the first broadcast of world-renowned ESPN and its sprawling 128-acre campus in Bristol. Author and historian Wilson H. Faude chronicles these exciting tales and more in this eclectic collection of Connecticut history."
