Solve the mystery of history and learn what life in Vermont was like long ago using photographs, letters, and objects from the past. We will examine special artifacts from our collections and the 1890 Farm Manager’s House and see what we can learn from historic photographs. Students will put on their “history detective” hats to examine primary sources for themselves and present their findings to the group.
