Second Saturday Gallery Talks: The Champlain Glassworks

August 10, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

L. Diana Carlisle discusses what could be more enticing for enterprising

businessmen looking for a start-up venture than the fascinating business of glass

making in 1827? But glass blowing was risky business – fires and more fires,

tariffs, competition for markets and for skilled workers, bankruptcy, then

successful reorganization, and on it went.

Join the Vermont Historical Society for this gallery talk and see a sample of the

glassworks shown in our Vermont Heritage Galleries. Exhibits open 1 to 4pm, talks

begin at 2pm, genealogical library open 9am to 4pm.Attend talks for free with

price of gallery admission.
