GREENWICH, Conn. -- "Coffee with the Curator" will give visitors a chance to tour a current exhibit and ask questions Thursday, Feb. 18 at the Greenwich Historical Society.

During its 375 years, Greenwich has evolved from a quiet, rural hamlet to a bustling community closely associated with affluence and power. Karen Frederick will host a special program to guide guests through that evolution.

She is curator of "Greenwich Choices: 50 Objects That Illustrate Our History." Using seldom-seen objects from the society's collection as waypoints, Frederick will explore how disparate items, such as a hand-sewn shirt with a bullet hole, a bill of sale for a 3-year-old slave boy and a state-of-the art vacuum cleaner, all contributed to the Greenwich narrative.

Local high school students also created labels for these objects, adding yet another dimension to the interpretation of this story. During the guided tour, guests will have an opportunity to ask questions and share personal responses to these objects that reflect choices made by past residents as the town grew and changed.

The event is from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the Greenwich Historical Society, 39 Strickland Road, Cos Cob. Admission is free but reservations are encouraged. To register, call 203-869-6899, ext. 10.
