Historical Society to celebrate completion of town histories

HALIFAX — The Halifax Historical Society celebrates the completion of its town history project on Saturday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Town Clerk's office in West Halifax.

Members of the writing committee will be available to sign books. Folks are invited to stop by with purchased copies of “Vol. 1, Born in Controversy,” released in June 2008, and “Vol. 2, Hills and Hollows,” released in November 2013. Books will be available for purchase.

The Halifax history project, a work of more than 20 years, consists of more than 1,000 pages rich in historical detail, biographies, maps, and photographs.

In his foreword, Vermont Civil War historian Howard Coffin says, “This is a town history that, while deeply researched and well noted, is readable for the telling of so many good stories. There's also much of the Vermont essence in these pages, old and new.”
