The Vermont History Museum
Barre, (pronounced like berry)Vermont
Up on a hill on Rt 302.
I went for a meeting there and now want to return
again to check it out more.
There is a statue of Robert Burns in the front.
Barre is known for fine granite.
Now I learn also Scottish stonecutters came
to Barre as well as Italians stonecutters.
Everywhere in Barre you see a sculpture.
We sat in an old classroom (it was a high school, then grade school).
I marveled that every photo lining the walls was of a man.
All of them seemed to be at least a hundred years ago.
What is the story there?
Like I said, I want to go back and check out Vermont history.
This is a good place to start.
