Back Roads Readings Grant Award

The Historic Society has been awarded a grant in the amount of $250.00 for our Back Road Readings program.  The grant was awarded by the Vermont Community Foundation from their Oaks & Acorn Fund, and it will continue to support this wonderful program.  Look for updates in 2019 for the upcoming schedule of authors and dates! 

Apiary grants awarded!

We have been awarded two grants, as well as received equipment donations, to allow us to establish a heritage educational apiary at the Museum.  The apiary will be one of the phases of our Historic Green Spaces Project.  We’ll keep you updated on our progress!
