Tilcon Quarry Tour - June 21st

The Totoket Historical Society is sponsoring a bus tour of the Tilcon Quarry at the corner of Route 80 and 22 in North Branford on Wednesday, June 21 - 6:30 p.m.   Make your reservations now so you don’t miss out on this wonderful tour!  

Stone from this quarry has played a vital role in building infrastructure throughout Connecticut.  It’s your opportunity to visit North Branford’s “hidden quarry treasure.”  The 90-minute tour will give you a chance to ask questions of the Tilcon guides and walk around the quarry floor, weather permitting.  It is an amazing operation that you can only imagine when passing by on Route 80.  

The cost of the tour is $20.  Checks made payable to the Totoket Historical Society, Inc. should be mailed to Box 491, Northford, CT 06472.  Reservations are confirmed only upon receipt of payment.  For information and reservations, call Florence at 203-484-5072 or Cappy at 203-484-2133. 

Tour participants should arrive at the North Branford Town Hall (909 Foxon Rd.) by 6:15 p.m. to check in.  The buses will board promptly at 6:30 and leave immediately. This is an experience that is interesting for both adults and children, so don’t miss out!   Seats are limited and sell out early. 

Proceeds from the tour will go toward the upkeep of those historic buildings under the care of the Totoket Historical Society, Inc in North Branford/Northford.
