Connecticut Humanities awards $5,000 to Historic New England’s Roseland Cottage to support community programming

The Connecticut Cultural Fund helps Connecticut museums, cultural, humanities, and arts organizations like Roseland Cottage maintain and grow their ability to serve their communities and the public. At Roseland Cottage, this means annually engaging more than ten thousand visitors for tours, concerts, school programs, and more. “We welcome area residents, schoolchildren, Historic New England members, people visiting the area, and people who come to our events year after year,” said Site Manager Laurie Masciandaro. “Come and visit Roseland Cottage. Enjoy tours of the house, concerts on the beautiful grounds, the Annual Arts and Crafts Festival, and much more!”

A state-wide effort

The grants are part of a two-year, $30. 7 million investment in arts, humanities, and cultural nonprofits by the Connecticut General Assembly and approved by Governor Ned Lamont. This Cul­tural Fund operating support grant is provided by CT Humanities, with fund­ing from the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Con­necticut Office of the Arts from the Connecticut State Legisla­ture.
