Vermont Historical Society wants to know what you think

Barre, VT – From now until May 1, the Vermont Historical Society is asking for input from the public about the future of VHS. They would like to learn how and if you use the Leahy Library in Barre; if your children take field trips to the Vermont History Museum in Montpelier; if you have enjoyed their Farmers’ Night presentations; if you are a Local Historical Society and make use of VHS mentoring and technical assistance; and how they can improve those programs and services.

The survey will take only a few minutes to complete and it is available at the Vermont History Museum at 109 State Street in Montpelier and the Vermont History Center at 60 Washington Street in Barre. It is also available online at

“Everyone’s thoughts and ideas are invaluable to us as we develop our plans for the future in regard to Vermont history for educators, students, researchers, genealogists, and Vermonters in the community,” says Mark Hudson, Vermont Historical Society Executive Director.

Please call (802) 479-8503 if you would like the Vermont Historical Society to mail you a survey.
