A Norwalk, Conn., postmark displays Carpenters’ Hall, the historic building where the First Continental Congress took place 250 years ago in Philadelphia.

The design is the Norpex 2024 show cancel, commemorating Connecticut’s significant role in those notable meetings.

The First Continental Congress was formed in response to the British Parliament’s enactment of the Intolerable Acts as punishment for the Boston Tea Party, eventually leading to the Revolutionary War.

Notable figures such as Roger Sherman from New Milford, Eliphalet Dyer from Windham and Silas Deane from Wethersfield served as Connecticut’s delegates to the First Continental Congress.

Carpenters’ Hall is free and open to the public, and it is hosting a new temporary exhibit titled “History In Your Mailbox: Depictions Of Carpenters’ Hall Through Postcards.”

To obtain the postmark, address your request to:

ROGER SHERMAN Station, Postmaster, 16 Washington St., Norwalk, CT 06856-9998, March 9.
