Local History Gallery: Lively & Local 2021
Lively & Local: Historical Societies in Vermont
April 6, 2021-October 30, 2021
Vermont History Museum, Montpelier, VT
Vermont’s story is shared, celebrated, and preserved by the over 190 local historical societies (LHS) and museums found in all corners of the state. Working hard, often armed only with volunteers and excellent apple pie recipes, they foster a sense of community that bridges generations, provide a sense of place, and help define Vermont’s unique identity.
The exhibit features photographs, stories, and associated information on a wide variety of local historical societies and museums in Vermont. It aims to showcase the diverse approaches to local history found in Vermont, how LHS are important community organizations, and how history (and those who preserve and share it) are not “static or stodgy”.
