On this #indigenouspeoplesday we honor the contributions of the Abenaki, and other indigenous peoples, to the story of Vermont. We are especially excited to be exploring Vermont’s indigenous agriculture, cuisine, and ceremony in our upcoming “Seeds of Renewal” exhibit, opening in November. (Seen here are Young John Lawyer, Jesse Lawyer, and Patrick Lamphere harvesting Abenaki corn and squash).
A lovely performance by Marjorie Strong on the Estey organ to cap off a great 180th VHS Annual Meeting!
It’s Milk Bowl day and we’re excited! Stop by our booth to play racing history trivia and win some candy and other cool prizes.
Great trip today to a meeting of Orleans County local historical Societies has to include a moose sighting! (Along with great discussions, delicious rhubarb punch, and spectacular views) @oldstonehousemuseum #vthistory #vermontmoose #localhistory #browningtonvt
