HIGLEY HISTORY BOOK
Back in the September 27, 1999 issue of COIN World, a letter to the Editor by Christopher S. Riley, Chief Guide at the Old New-Gate Prison and Copper Mine Museum in East
Granby, CT, mentioned a book which should be of interest to collectors of U.S. Colonial coinage. The letter commented favorably on subscriber Dan Friedus' August 23rd article on
Higley coppers. The museum honors America's first chartered copper mine (1707), and Connecticut's first colonial prison (1773), used by the Continental Congress.
"We also carry copies of William Donovel's 1998 history of "New Gate," which has an informative chapter on Dr. Samuel Higley, his mine, and his tokens."
According to a Connecticut tourism web site, the address of the museum is:
East Granby, CT 06026.
Telephone: (860) 653-3563.
