Henry Sheldon was born in 1821 in Salisbury, Vermont, and became a passionate collector up until his death in 1907. He turned that collection and his Middlebury home into a museum, which opened to the public on July 21st, 1884. Vermont Historical Society Executive Director Steve Perkins and Local 22 & Local 44 anchor Mike Hoey head over to the museum to learn about its founder and mission.
