Join the Vermont Historical Society for the 2nd Annual Freedom & Unity Luncheon and the 181st VHS Annual Meeting on Sunday, September 29th, from Noon to 3:30 pm at the Capitol Plaza in Montpelier.
We hope that our work thus far and plans for the future will draw you into a closer relationship with the VHS and our vision to “preserve the past, inform the present, and promote Vermont’s shared legacy for future generations.”
