Waiting for President Kennedy


Our last quiz for 2013 featured this very poor picture of an enthusiastic crowd gathered along Main Street on October 17, 1962 waiting for the only visit to Derby by John F. Kennedy while he was president of the U.S. An estimated 6,000 people were there that day. Check out the full story of the historic day here.


Our previous quiz featured a major construction project along the Naugatuck River. Click here to learn more.
