10. Some of the world’s most famous cloth is woven in the Stafford textile mills. (“World’s most famous cloth?” Is that a joke? Is there someone in the world that talks about the amazing cloth we have here in Connecticut?)

 

9. In 1937, Connecticut became the first state to issue permanent license plates for cars. (Seems odd. Did we have so many cars on the road that we had to be the ones to establish a way to tell the cars apart?- Kind of cool and strange all at the same time)

 

 

8. Connecticut State insect is the Praying Mantis. (I would have guessed the tiny ants by the amount of them that invade my house every Spring)

 

 

7. The first automobile law was passed by the state of CT in 1901. The speed limit was set at 12 miles per hour. (…and today if you’re over 85 and still driving, you also still go 12 mph.)

 

6. West Hartford is the birthplace of Noah Webster, the author of the first dictionary published in 1807. (Well that’s just plain cool)
