We invite you to contact us if you are interested in adding a short article about Montpelier history to our new blog. We also encourage you to share photos.
Welcome to the new Montpelier Vermont Historical Society website. We are a group of people committed to resurrecting the Society in a new and innovative form in order to share and collaborate with everyone interested in Montpelier’s fascinating past, no matter where you live. The old Montpelier Historical Society ceased operations in 1995. Some of us were born in Montpelier, some have ancestors who lived here, and some of us are more recent arrivals. We all want to share in the work of making Montpelier’s history more accessible to everyone.
There are several ways to communicate with other history lovers in the area. Suggested Facebook Groups are Montpelier Vermont History, Montpelier Memories, Berlin, Vermont Memories and Burlington Area History. There are many other neighboring towns with Facebook Groups.
Here is the Mission Statement draft we are working on: The mission of the Montpelier Vermont Historical Society is to enhance the public’s understanding of Montpelier’s heritage through the research, interpretation, and sharing of its rich historical past.
ATTENTION! We are hoping to find a donated heated space to use for storage and possibly meetings. We need to move our old collection out of the Pavilion basement if possible. Please let us know if you have any ideas about this.
