William A. Churchill
William Churchill was one of the ten shareholders in the Walnut Hill Park Company, which was incorporated in 1857 for the purpose of developing a public park. He was one of New Britain's early philanthropists. In addition to his efforts with the Walnut Hill Park Company, he contributed his time and money to the establishment of the New Britain Gaslight Company and the New Britain Educational Trust Fund - the fund utilized to establish the state Normal School. In his business endeavors, William Churchill was a partner in a long-standing jewelry business. The firm was called Churchill, Lewis and Company when William Churchill died, in 1874.
