Mike Allen's In-Person Local Histories
"The Leatherman: A Western Connecticut Legend"
For six years during the late 1800s, this so-called "hobo" hiked the same 360-mile, circuitous route through CT and NY every 34 days like clockwork. Residents could predict when he would return to their town. Wearing a self-made suit of leather, from head to toe, he conversed with no one and slept in caves. And we still don't know who he was. But, people loved him.
