PLAINVILLE - The “Plainville: The Crossroads of Connecticut” display continues at the Plainville Historic Center.

From Native American trails, a canal and covered bridges to trolleys, bicycles, railroads, highways and an airport, Plainville has historically been a hub for transportation.

Visitors are invited to the Plainville Historic Center at 29 Pierce St. to see how the town was shaped by the ways in which people and goods have moved from one place to another.

This 2017 summer display is open Saturdays from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and Wednesdays from noon through 2:30 p.m.

Visitors can learn about the past that has made Plainville what it is today and how that history still has impact on what residents will experience in the future.
