The evolutionary history of Southington from WWI through WWII is a microcosm of the state, region, and even the nation at large. The town was profiled in a War Department booklet during WWII as representative of a typical American town. The booklet was distributed to both allies and enemies. The Southington Genealogical Society kicks off the New Year with guest speaker Liz Kopec discussing this era, Southington, 1914 to WWII.
