Date Day with History





We started off the day with a book reading at my hometown library.  It gave me the opportunity to see the city in a way that I haven't in years.  There is a history there, a beauty that comes from the uniqueness of the building. 
I love history and architecture so much and my husband decided to show me the history of my hometown.  The weather was 70+ degrees outside and the smell of Autumn was in the air. 



This is the first bank that opened bearing the city's name... Savings Bank of Danbury.  I hold all of my accounts here and have never seen this building.  


Although, inactive now, this was the way banks sounded an alarm if their vault was disturbed.  The alarm would sound throughout the streets alerting the police and those walking by.


 This once held the public library, but the name was never removed. 


What history have you seen in your hometown?  What makes you proud to live there or visit once you left?
