Presentation: Strong Women during the American Revolution in the Southern Lake Champlain Valley

June 24 @ 7:00 pm

The Starksboro Historical Society is hosting an illustrated talk, “Strong Women of Vermont’s South Lake Champlain Valley during the American Revolution.”

The program is at the Village Meeting House, 2875 VT Route 116 in Starksboro.

Society member Elsa Gilbertson is the presenter.

The program will introduce some of the strong, resilient women in this area during this time of war in the 1770s and 1780s. How did the war interrupt their lives? What were their contributions leading to settlement and as founders of their new towns in Vermont and the new nation.

Free and open to the public.

Co-sponsors of the program are the Starksboro Village Meeting House, Public Library, and Conservation Commission.

This is the first of several programs the historical society expect to offer in the next few years as Vermont and the nation gear up for the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 2026 and Republic of Vermont and Battle of Hubbardton in 2027.

Come as you are, attendees are also welcome to come in period attire if they like, and to share their own stories or research.

Parking is in the town center lot, 2849 Rte 116, Starksboro .
