What an incredible site. I was born in Middletown. My mother and father are from East Haddam. I went to Nathan Hale-Ray School, from which both my parents graduated. Although we moved from town years ago, we still have attachments there and I found your series of articles to be great. It was a shame what happened with "redevelopment," with some of my family bearing some responsibility. I look forward to more material, now that I have located your site. Keep up the great work.
