The evening begins with the annual business meeting of Peacham Library including Trustees’ Report, Treasurer’s Report, Librarian’s Report, election of trustees and officers.
Our guest speaker is Larry Coffin, curator of the Bradford Historical Society, who will share a presentation about Vermont’s response to other epidemics throughout history. He also writes the “In Past Times” history blog.
The Peacham Library and the Peacham Historical Association are partnering to bring you a summertime activity, available July 3 through July 26. Enjoy on your own, with a friend, or with your family. Children are very welcome!
Eleven sites have been identified around Peacham village that mark the town’s history fighting off diseases and epidemics. To visit them, you’ll need the map below.
The Quest is designed to be and outdoor, walkable event. Please visit the sites with your family or use a mask to walk it with a friend. You may also use a car and then walk a short distance to the sites. The signs with historical information are marked with orange orienteering flags. Please be respectful of the landowners who are granting you permission to walk on their property.
