Dear Society members and friends,
Your newly reconstituted Montpelier Historical Society is off and running. Our Directors are all very busy. Our first public meeting on May 22nd was well received by a large and enthusiastic group. Kathryn Guare organized the entertaining Show and Tell program, featuring a number of well-known business’s and their owners. We intend to repeat the program again next May.
Our Common Cracker exhibit opened at the Vermont History Museum on August 1st and one week later we hosted an opening reception for the exhibit at the Snelling Room at the Pavilion. October 22nd saw the program, “The Golden age of Vermont State News Coverage”, presented at the Pavilion Auditorium. Jennifer Boyer and Corinne Cooper are busy updating and adding to previous walking tours and we hope to produce a cemetery tour in 2023.
In September we moved a portion of our collection from the basement of the Pavilion Building to a small room in the offices of The Bridge on the VCFA campus. Paul Carnahan and Jackie Dennison have begun the process of organizing our paper collection.
We are very interested in growing our membership and invite you to join on-line at our website, montpeliervthistoricalsociety.org. Please email us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
