VHS Statement on the Coronavirus

UPDATE 3/16/20

Dear Vermont Historical Society Community, 
 
With the health and safety of our entire community in mind, the Vermont Historical Society will close to the public as of March 17.  As previously communicated, all special events, classes, and tours in the immediate future have been cancelled or moved online. 
 
I encourage you to explore our digital offerings - be it a live broadcast of a Third Thursday lecture via our Facebook page, listening to our enthralling Before Your Time podcast, viewing the extensive archive of At This Place in History TV programs, or exploring our Library Catalog and image galleries.  VHS staff is excited to add to these opportunities over the coming weeks, so please check back often. 
I know that many Vermont students have worked very hard on their Vermont History Day projects and looked forward to the daylong competition and celebration on April 4th.  Rather than cancel the entire program, we are administering a Virtual Competition with planned in-person celebration later in the year.  More information can be found on the Vermont History Day page of our website. 
 
Please check this website regularly for updates on the reopening of our facilities and return to normal programming. 
Be well and stay healthy. 
 
Best Regards, 
Steve Perkins 
Executive Director
