In researching the history of her historic New Milford home, Hedy Grant came across an 1883 deed that referenced as a landmark an “old [African American] Burying ground.” Ms. Grant altered her course determined to find the burying ground, which she did with the help of genealogist and historian Peggy W. Norris.


Hedy Grant is a retired lawyer currently serving her fourth term as a councilwoman in New Milford. She recently coordinated the creation of a Sculpture Garden at the New Milford Public Library.
