A Great History, Genealogy and Trivia Resource
Franklin County, Vermont
New 35-Page Booklet
Early days in Franklin County, VT, are recalled through a mix of colorful tales, factual data and trivia, in this booklet comprised of excerpts from three rare vintage books: The Geography and History of Vermont by S.R. Hall (1871); History and Description of New England - Vermont by A.J. Coolidge and J.B. Mansfield (1860); and Vermont, a Guide to the Green Mountain State, written by the Workers of the Federal Writer's Project of the WPA (1937). The 35-page booklet is printed single-sided on 60# opaque paper with the print size enlarged as needed to fit the 8 1/2 x 11 size. A vinyl sheet has been added to protect the front cover.
A major part of the booklet consists of histories of each township (town), which vary in size depending on the prominence of the town and its historical significance. The towns and villages include Bakersfield, Berkshire, Enosburgh, Fairfax, Fairfield, Fletcher, Franklin, Georgia, Highgate, Montgomery, Richford, St. Albans (shire town known as "the Railroad City"), and Swanton.
Early settlers, physical features, industrial development, involvement in "Papineau War", and "St. Albans Raid," the most northerly engagement of the Civil War, are among the topics in this booklet.
The WPA excerpts include a section on St. Albans, including points of interest. The WPA writings, while out-of-date as a tour guide, remain a fascinating source of historical tidbits.
The booklet has a few illustrations, but their quality is only fair.
Wouldn't this make a unique gift?
