Sharing... the stories of our past

“How well I remember the flood. We were forced out of our house and the only thing left when it was all over was one dam. When I think of all the terrible things that have happened all over the world, I realize how lucky we were to get through it and rebuild.

Sue Sulla on the Norwalk Flood




Few events have left a greater mark on Norwalk than the devastating flood of 1955. And few have a greater memory of this catastrophic event than lifelong Norwalk resident Sue Sulla, whose house was damaged 50 years ago.

Sue, who is in her 90s and is still going strong, offers just the kind of living history that must be preserved.

  Her memories are part of the Historical Society’s flood exhibit of June 2005, entitled “Angry Waters”. The exhibit, originally installed in the Norwalk Museum, was later moved to the third floor of Norwalk City Hall, where it is currently on display outside the offices of the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency.
