The Harrison House Museum was recently visited by Pamela Harrison Blum and her husband, Rick Blum. Pamela is a distant relative of the Harrison family. They came to Branford from Virginia and spent time touring the house and visiting the cemetery where the Harrison family is buried. They also did some genealogical research at the Blackstone Memorial Library.
