Yale University

Branford, CT

The weather in Connecticut has been very mild this winter, and from all signs, spring has come early.  During my lunch hour on a recent warm, spring day, I took a walk around Branford Center and came across this monument, commemorating what was essentially the founding of Yale University.  Ministers from the colony of Connecticut met near this site in 1700 and gave books to the Collegiate School, which is now known as Yale University.    


  1. It has been pretty much the same here in Montreal. Nice blog, thank you for sharing.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog. I've been to Montreal. It's a wonderful city. I can't complain about the weather so far this year.

  3. What a fine and unpretentious monument for the founding of a great university. Yes, been a warm winter and early spring here too. We are about 20 degrees above normal for March, usually our major snow month. This year we get green grass and plants.
