It’s Connecticut day at The Big E

Connecticut

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Today is Connecticut day at the fair. It’s usually one of the busiest weekdays! Visit the Nutmeg State on Avenue of States featuring local seafood, agriculture and history.

Visit the Connecticut Building

“Governor Wilbur C. Cross placed the cornerstone of the Connecticut Building on Sept. 20, 1938, just as the mighty “Hurricane of ’38” hit the fairgrounds. The building was officially opened and dedicated the following year. At a cost of $85,000, the fifth addition to the Avenue was modeled after the Old Statehouse in Hartford. With its famous Bulfinch front, the building features brownstone, brick and dignified wooden columns.”
