Vermont Historical Society Museum

The Vermont Historical Society is a not-for-profit, membership-supported organization founded in 1838 by an act of the Vermont legislature and dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Vermont history. It operates a library (located in Barre) and museum, has active publishing and educational programs, and sponsors special events. The VHS museum, located in the Pavilion Building near the State Capitol in Montpelier, is a tremendous asset and a "must-see" for anyone interested in Vermont's heritage and way of life.

Museum Exhibits
The museum's permanent exhibit, Freedom and Unity: One Ideal, Many Stories, opened in March 2004. The multimedia exhibit, which represents Vermont's history from 1600 to the present, fills 5,000 square feet in the Pavilion building in Montpelier. Visitors walk through time and experience a full sized Abenaki wigwam, a re-creation of the Catamount Tavern where Ethan Allen's Green Mountain Boys gathered, a railroad station complete with a working telegraph and a WWII living room furnished with period music and magazines.
