The North Fairfield Brick Church, organized in the early 1800’s, located near the intersection of Duffy Hill Road and Chester Arthur Road

There is a very interesting write up about this church in the Fairfield History box on site. Chester Arthur’s father, William Arthur, was pastor here.

Vermont State Parks - Burton Island

I highly recommend a day trip via the Island Runner Ferry to Burton Island State Park. Interestingly, the island was used for farmland and pasture before becoming a state park. Passes for free state park admission are available at the Enosburgh Public Library.

https://vtstateparks.com/burton.html

Burton Island is a 253-acre park off the southwestern tip of St. Albans Point in Lake Champlain’s 'Inland Sea'. The park is accessible only by boat, with the state’s passenger ferry making the 10-minute trip from Kill Kare State Park.

The Groton State Forest area, which has an interesting lumber mill and Civilian Conservation Corps history, makes a wonderful summer day trip! I recommend a picnic at the CCC-built Owl’s Head Picnic Shelter!

Our very own Abe’s Cabin!

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.
