WESTMINSTER, Vt. – Dr. Christopher Berman, archeologist, and Robert Haas will give an illustrated talk on mapping historical sites in Westminster, Vt., on Monday, Sept. 18 at the Westminster Fire House, Grout Ave. in Westminster.
They will discuss the importance of these sites to the town’s future, how they locate them, and the types of things they are looking to document. These include old roads, cellar holes, dams, and mills. The first settlers did not necessarily use or live on the roads we see today. There will be maps created from this research available for your viewing.
The annual Westminster Historical Society meeting will precede this program at 7 p.m. to elect trustees and any other brief business necessary. Come a bit earlier to pay your annual dues. Light refreshments will be served after the program with time to greet your neighbors. This program is free and open to everyone.
