Annual Spring Meeting
The Annual Spring Meeting for 2017 will be held at the Visions of Vermont Art Gallery, 100 Main St. in Jeffersonville, Vermont, on April 22 (not on April 15, Easter Weekend, as first scheduled).
Our speakers; Kyle Obenauer, VTrans Historic Preservation Specialist, and Brennan Gauthier, VTrans Archaeologist, will present an overview of the Scott Bridge rehabilitation, including requirements and challenges of working on the historic structure; a discussion about a recent site visit to the Clarendon home of noted covered bridge builder Nichols Powers; and an introduction to some of Vermont’s earliest travel corridors and their evolution through the turn of the twentieth century, using Burlington as a case study.
The door will be open to the Sugarhouse Gallery next to the main gallery at 9:00 a.m. for set-up and socializing. Snack will be served. The Business meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. The presentations will begin at 10:00.
Lunch will be served at noon next door at the 158 Main Restaurant & Bakery to attendees paying their own way, to be followed by a guided covered bridge tour.
