In this episode of the Experience We-Ha Podcast, Jeff Lovanio and Ryan Keating talk West Hartford history with the executive director of the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society, Jennifer Matos. How much do YOU know about the founding father of the American English language? Jenn gives us a little history lesson about Noah Webster and the original dictionary, the Blue-Backed Speller, and the great signature events the organization hosts throughout the year including the upcoming War of the Words at Congregation Beth Isreal. She also tells the story behind the statue in Blue Back Square – and the deal with Noah’s broken finger.
