Summary
"Frog Hollow: Stories from an American Neighborhood is a collection of colorful historical vignettes of an ethnically diverse neighborhood just west of the Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford. The reporter Susan Campbell tells the true stories of Frog Hollow, with a primary focus on the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, recounting anecdotes about the neighborhood's inventors, entrepreneurs, and workers, as well as the impact of African American migration to Hartford, the civil rights movement, and the continuing fight for housing. From European colonists to Irish and Haitian immigrants to residents from Puerto Rico, the denizens of Frog Hollow reflect the multiple realities that make up a dynamic urban neighborhood. At the same time, their stories reveal the changing face of American cities."--From dust jacket.
