The Goffe Street Armory –
Putting History in
Historic Preservation
Sunday, February 21, 2021, 4pm
By Leah S. Glaser
Preservation practice has often focused almost exclusively on architecture. As a result, we risk losing important and diverse histories associated with places not deemed architecturally significant. A key reason for the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act in 1966 was to save historic places for the public. We need to include robust historical context when documenting historic places, valuing historical significance as much as we have valued architectural significance in what and why we save. The Goffe Street Armory provides a fine example of why we must preserve history along with architecture.
The presentation will be given by Leah S. Glaser, Professor of American History and the American West at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, where she serves as Coordinator of the Public History Program. In addition to working as a historic preservation consultant, she has public history experience that includes work with the New Haven Preservation Trust, Virginia Center for Digital History, the United States Bureau of Reclamation, and the National Park Service. She serves on the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Council. Glaser is an active member of the National Council on Public History.

to provide support for their fundraising event.

The Good Adoptee is the riveting true story that chronicles award-winning playwright Suzanne Bachner’s search for her birth parents in the face of New York State’s sealed records. Once she opens Pandora’s Box, can she find a way to integrate her dual identities and still remain “The Good Adoptee”?

  • Post-show talk back panel hosted by Randi Rubin Rodriguez,
    ‘r kids Co-Founder and Executive Director.

  • Tickets are $36 for the general public and $18 for students
Theater Scene called The Good Adoptee “Superior Writing…A spellbinding emotional detective story!” and Hi Drama raved: “The Good Adoptee is everything you want a solo show to be: well crafted, lovingly performed and thoroughly entertaining!”

This multi-award-winning solo play was last performed on stage at the SJCC in Seattle and has been enjoying a global audience in its virtual presentations including the 2021 launch of National Association of Adoptees and Parents. Read more at
