This page contains links to transcriptions of manuscripts or manuscript collections at the Leahy Library of the Vermont Historical Society in Barre, Vermont. We intend to add materials to this electronic collection as time allows. These electronic resources are provided as a convenience to researchers who want to access primary source materials without making a trip to the library.
A larger selection of materials are listed in our online catalog, and an even larger number of collections have been cataloged only with a card indexing system at the library. Be sure to visit our library to explore the broadest possible collection of resources.
You can now search keywords within the finding aids to our manuscript collections. (Be sure to scroll down the resulting page to the "mansucripts" section.)
