A horse, of course! Morgans and more!
Naturally, there'll be Morgan horses and many other heritage animals at Vermont History Expo on June 18 and 19 at the Tunbridge World's Fairgrounds.
Vermont History Expo is not complete without farm animals. In the past three decades, there has been growing interest in preserving the genetics of historic breed animals. Come to Expo to find out more about these animals -- and farming techniques, too.
We'll also share farming techniques such as beekeeping, poultry raising, and don't forget ice cream making, too! Updated schedules here.

Meet the author of Seven Years of Grace!
Meet Sara Rath, the author of Seven Years of Grace at Vermont History Expo. This new book by the Society is a dramatized account of Achsa W. Sprague (1827–1862), who lectured for seven years on Spiritualism, the abolition of slavery, women’s rights, and prison reform. Grounded in the extensive collection of Sprague’s papers at the Vermont Historical Society, this fascinating tale includes trances, the brush of angel wings, and the love Achsa felt for a married man.
