GLASTONBURY - The Historical Society of Glastonbury’s newest exhibit is a glimpse into early-American culture: the new display features 14 looking glasses, part of a personal collection of 60 which come to the museum from James Cooke and Anita Hochstein of Glastonbury, who have collected them for over 30 years. A story and history of early-America can be told from this selection of different size, shape and style vintage mirrors, or looking glass or glass, as mirrors were commonly referred to. This eclectic array of vintage early-American mirrors is only on display until May 1. Museum hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the third Sunday of every month from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission to the Museum on the Green is free. If weekends work best for you, make sure mark April 21 on your calendar.
