The Townshend parcel of WLT’s Nightingale Woods Preserve is backdrop to area resident Donna Dufresne's ongoing research of the Randall family, some of its early inhabitants. The Pomfret Historical Society is sponsoring four workshops presented by Donna that will cover research techniques and burial ground restoration featuring the enslaved Africans of Jonathan Randall from 1777 up to the Civil War. Workshops include tours of historic sites including the WLT Townshend Preserve in the Nightingale Woods and demonstrations on repairing and cleaning gravestones.
