Historical Society Events

The Salisbury Historical Society, in conjunction with the Salisbury School Library and the Salisbury Public Library, is presenting two programs to promote an understanding of our own town's history and to encourage people to read and discuss the Vermont Reads book Counting on Grace.

6:30 p.m.

Max Petersen, local historian and author of Salisbury: From Birth to Bicentennial and other local history books, will speak about the historical tensions between East and West Salisbury on October 2 at 6:30 p. m. at the public library.

6:30 p.m.

On October 16 at 6:30 p.m. Barry Whitney and members of the Salisbury Historical Society will again meet at the Library to display and discuss historic photos of Salisbury town and townspeople. We invite you to bring your own old family photos to discuss and share. Barry Whitney will be on hand to assist people who want to work on discovering more about their family history.

7:00 p.m.

The Salisbury Community School will hold a book discussion for school children and their parents on November 7 at 7 p.m. at the school library.
