T
he 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.


Walking Tour
 
The Waitsfield Historical Society has prepared a self-guided walking tour brochure and map to the historic district of Waitsfield. Many 18th and 19th century homes line Route 100 from the General Wait House to the Covered Bridge and are described for the visitor to follow. The brochure is free.

Collections and Research Library
Our collection consists of documents, artifacts, photographs and other material relating to local history. We continue to collect and catalogue archives on computer to be used for research.
