Great Exhibit About Brattleboro

There is a fabulous exhibit about Brattleboro in the Vermont Historical Society Museum in Montpelier.   The exhibit, titled Brattleboro-The Defining Decades, 1870-1920, has been produced by the Brattleboro Historical Society , the Estey Organ Museum, with installation design by Chris Grotke.

The exhibit has several sections, each filled with photos, artifacts, artwork, published and printed materials. There is a large1896 floor map of downtown Brattleboro; this is a replica of an original Sandborn Fire Map that identifies all buildings, streets and indicates location of houses.

The exhibit is open through January, 2019. Helpful Visitor and Educator’s Guides can be downloaded from the Vermont Historical Society Museum website at

It is well worth the trip to Montpelier to see this panorama of Brattleboro history.
