Have you ever wondered who the Cunningham was that Cunningham Rd was named after?
The Rev Gerald A. Cunningham, bought the 248 acre property at the end of the road in 1928. After his passing in 1944, his widow (who was also a person of note) sold the property to the Thyberg family. Rev Cunningham was the rector at St. John’s Protestant Episcopal Church. Molly Cunningham was politically active advocating for women’s health and the physically disabled. #WarrenCt #WarrenCtHistoricalSociety #Cunningham #HistoryRemebers #Streetnames
