Luddy Taylor Tobacco MuseumThe Connecticut Valley Tobacco Historical Society was formed in 1987 to help preserve historical evidence of the cigar tobacco agriculture, educate the present and future generations, operate a museum, and serve as the museum’s governing body.
This society was the beneficiary of a trust fund set up by John E. Luddy who earned his money from selling shade cloth and other items needed by growers. The Connecticut Valley Tobacco Historical Society in turn made a grant to the Town of Windsor to be used for a tobacco museum at Northwest Park.
The resulting Luddy/Taylor Connecticut Valley Tobacco Museum consists of two structures. First, an existing tobacco curing barn was moved and remodeled to accommodate exhibits of early and modern equipment used to grow the crop. Second, a new, year-round facility was built to serve as an archive exhibit photographs, writings, and other documents about the crop. The museum is open seasonally, for three days a week, between March and December.
Admission is Free. Donations are greatly appreciated.
