The Waitsfield Historical Society is located in the restored General Wait House at the North end of the Village Historic District on Route 100 in Waitsfield, Vermont. It is our purpose to discover, collect, preserve and exhibit artifacts, papers, and other materials that will illustrate the record of the historical development of the Mad River Valley, Waitsfield, Warren, Fayston and Moretown for future generations.
The Waitsfield Historical Society Annual Potluck Supper Will Be Held Wednesday, May 11, 2016 - Dinner 6pm
The program will have a panel of four members of the Valley: Gordie Eurich, Paul Marble, Fred Messer and Fred Viens who will share memories of early farming days and how thing have changed over the years. An article in the January 26th, 2006 edition of the Valley Reporter by Kevin Eurich lists 69 farms in the Valley up to the early 1960’s. According to Kevin at the time his article was written only five remained. Kevin remarked , “When I hear people talk of open land and pristine pastoral views I know that the farmers made it so." The audience will be encouraged to share their own memories of the farms in the Valley.
This is the third program in a series about the Valley and its history with a panel of local participants. The first was about sugaring the second about the early schools in the Valley. Both programs were very well received with lots of audience participation. Please join us for this free program.
