Greensboro Historical Society 2020 Calendar of Events

 

The GHS Museum is following Vermont state guidelines, Greensboro town guidelines
as well as the advice of its board as to when it will resume activities for the public.

Currently, the GHS Museum will be open from 10am-1pm on Saturdays from July 4 through August 29.

We ask that visitors wear masks and adhere to the 6-foot social distancing mandate.

We will update our calendar as changes occur.


Summer 2020 Activity: 
Self-guided History Explorer Walk in Greensboro Village & Greensboro Bend

Looking for a fun, interesting activity this summer?

Take the self-guided History Explorer Walk in Greensboro Village or Greensboro Bend. 
(The walk will be posted from July 15 - Labor Day.)

Children and adults alike are invited to explore a bit of  Greensboro's history with a fun, self-guided walk through the village sponsored by the Greensboro Historical Society and Greensboro Free Library.  


Pick up a map with a questionnaire on the back at the Greensboro Free Library, the Greensboro Historical Society, at Smith’s Store or print out at home from one of our websites, (www.greensborofreelibrary.org or www.greensborohistoricalsociety.org).  

It's a great walk, with some surprising information and there are even prizes for answering questions.
Follow the numbered designations to each historic location where you can read the history and answer the questionnaire, if you wish, to receive a free volume of the history of Greensboro.
(Take sheets to the library to receive book.) Find photos, for example, of the first town hall or the Caspian Lake House in Greensboro Village, or the workers at the first sawmill in Greensboro Bend. 

Much of the information came from the booklet "An Architectural Walking Tour of Greensboro, VT" prepared by GHS in 2001. Copies of that booklet are available to check out from the GFL or for sale on the GHS website or purchased at the GHS museum on a Saturday morning 10 – 1pm.
