Frog Hollow

Stories from an American Neighborhood

Frog Hollow: Stories from an American Neighborhood is a collection of colorful historical vignette. Frog Hollow is an ethnically diverse neighborhood just west of the Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford. Its row houses have been home to inventors, entrepreneurs and workers, and it was one of the first neighborhoods in the country to experiment with successful urban planning models, including public parks and free education. From European colonists to Irish and Haitian immigrants to Puerto Ricans, these stories of Frog Hollow show the multiple realities that make up a dynamic urban neighborhood. Features 40 illustrations.

Reviews

"With a journalist's keen eye and nose for storytelling, Campbell indeed peels the layers of the thick, historical onion (her term) of one gritty New England city neighborhood.—Elizabeth J. Normen, publisher, Connecticut Explored

Susan Campbell brings the history of Frog Hollow alive. We relive the struggles and triumphs of the ordinary –and not so ordinary- people who traversed this complex, dynamic neighborhood since the arrival of the first Europeans, and before. For the reader who is familiar with Frog Hollow, this book is an eye-opening gift. It's fascinating to lean about the human dramas that played out on the streets named Russ, Lawrence, Putnam or Babcock St. and even discover the origins of these street names."—Pablo Delano, Professor of Fine Arts, Trinity College Hartford Connecticut

"Campbell's book goes into great detail about the misfortunes, the corporate decisions and the governmental missteps that contributed to bringing Frog Hollow low. But despite a sometimes sorrowful tone, the book ends on a hopeful note."—Hartford Courtant
