Turner Family Stories: From Enslavement in Virginia to Freedom in Vermont
Jane C. Beck

Turner Family Stories presents two of Daisy's accounts of the life of her father, Alec Turner, by Marek Bennett and Joel Christian Gill, and two stories from Daisy's own life by Francis Bordeleau and Lilllie Harris. The comics are linked together through a story by Grafton native Ezra Veitch, based on a childhood encounter he and a friend had with Daisy one afternoon. Center for Cartoon Studies graduate Robyn Smith drew the volume's cover. The book also features a Foreword by Gretchen Gerzina, Introduction by Julian Chambliss and a Preface by Jane Beck. -- Amazon

Thank you Linda Radtke for the wonderful program last night! Linda’s program was an educational, insightful and heartfelt tribute to the suffragists from the mid-1800’s to the 1920’s. Thanks to their unflagging dedication and unending hard work, women have enjoyed the right to vote for 100 years now. I left the program feeling a deep appreciation for these women, and am incredibly thankful for equal voting rights. Get out and vote this coming November! It is a hard-fought right that should be exercised at every opportunity!

🔅Joint Gathering of Franklin & Grand Isle County Historical Societies 🔅

Saturday, 10/1, 9am
Interfaith Food Shelf, Church St., Sheldon VT (next to Methodist Church)

If a member of Enosburgh Historical Society, Please RSVP to: [email protected]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Members of Franklin and Grand Isle County Historical Societies are cordially invited to meet on Saturday, October 1st in Sheldon. This is the first opportunity Sheldon has had to host our annual get-together! It's an important gathering: a wonderful opportunity to share ideas, information, and insights; but especially is this a chance to renew acquaintances in an atmosphere of shared interests.

The meeting will convene at 9AM Saturday, October 1 at the Sheldon Interfaith Foodshelf (beside the Methodist Church) on Church Street, Sheldon Creek. Participants will have a chance to highlight events and activities in their respective society. Our keynote presentation by Harold Smith and Fern Mercure investigates the meteoric rise and dramatic collapse of Sheldon's fashionable mineral spring resorts.

We'll enjoy brunch at the foodshelf before adjourning a few dozen yards down Church Street to the Sheldon Historical Society's new home and museum, where we can continue to explore ideas and share resources.

The fire tower at Allis State Park. This park was established in 1928, the second state park in Vermont. (Mount Philo was the first VT State Park.) It was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps beginning in 1932.

This is one of only a handful of fire towers in the state, and an easily accessible one, as there is a road leading right to the tower.

The Floating Bridge in Brookfield, VT

Text: Since 1820, eight versions of the Floating Bridge have spanned Sunset Lake, each serving as a unique gateway to Brookfield Village. Previous versions of the bridge were constructed with a variety of materials, including massive timbers, 50-gallon barrels, and Styrofoam. The eighth version opened in 2015 and was intended to reflect the overall design and aesthetics of the previous crossings, but is constructed with a state of the art flotation system to allow for easier maintenance and segmental replacement. Brookfield’s is the only floating bridge in Vermont, and remains an important community landmark and gathering place for the town.

Check out the interesting and informative Brookfield Historical Society website for more information on the floating bridge:

Kudos to Enosburgh Historical Society.👍
thank you for your invitation....I was born in Maple Park Enosburg Falls Oct 1947 in Mrs Smith's house where my parents rented an apartment..we lived next door to my aunt Helen Coe and her family before we moved to St Albans when I was about 4...But my enduring memories are of the wood shavings smell from the bobbin mill..My aunt lived to almost 103 years..Every time I visit" home" I go to Maple Park..and was there 2017
Local history can sometimes be seen as layers through time. For the Enosburgh Historical Society, peeling back the layers involved the discovery of an 1830s-1840s log cabin that had been clapboarded over and slated for demolition before townsperson Dr. Lester Judd remembered it wasn’t what it seemed. “I observed a hole in the plaster that revealed logs and chinking,” he said in a written note in 1977. The exciting discovery prompted the owner, Abe Brown, to deed the property to the Village of Enosburgh Falls and now the Enosburgh Historical Society maintains it as a hands-on experience of life in the mid-19th century.

Hi All. I am looking for a 1922 EFHS Year Book to get some photos scanned out of... anyone have one on a shelf? Did they even have them back then??

My grandfather was the Valedictorian and I have his typed up speech. Hoping to add some pictures to it.
In 1968-69 or 1969-70, while I was teaching Home Economics at Enosburg High School, I organized a group of women who sewed band capes for the high school band. They were green cotton bark-cloth capes with a white "E" on the corner. They were worn with white pants and white shirt. Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of the band wearing them. I am looking for a couple to use in a book I am writing. Does anyone have one they will share? Thanks, in advance.
Can anyone tell me the name of the movie theater in Enosburg, approximately when it closed, owner(s)? Thanks.
Drop by to see the Enosburg Historical Society's operating Lionel and HO scale train setups upstairs over the Enosburg town clerks office (239 Main St) Saturday, September 21, 2019 (11:00 to 3 pm. )
We just received our Newsletter that we always enjoy. This issue was very bitter sweet upon learning that the beautiful old church at the center was coming down. I had so hoped at least one more time next summer being able to take pictures inside and out because our ADAMS-wRIGHTS-NICHOLS family were some of the early pioneers on the forefront of building that church. We have in our records the family pews they paid for every year. The beautiful old lights are one of my favorite memories. Is there any chance we could schedule just more visit before tearing this structure down? Just tell us when and we will be there with our families!
It would be great if you had a snail mail address posted on this site. I have a few photos I want to send.
