Windham County

Book Description:

Early days in Windham 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 68 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 Athens, Brattleboro (Brattleborough), Brookline, Dover, Dummerston, Grafton, Guilford, Halifax, Jamaica, Londonderry, Marlboro, Newfane, Putney, Rockingham, Somerset, Stratton, Townshend, Vernon, Wardsboro, Westminster, Whitingham, Wilmington and Windham. Indian alarms, real and imagined; the rescue of Lt. Leonard Spaulding, charged with high treason; Political power struggles with New York; Benjamin Carpenter, John Shepardson, William Bigelow, General Samuel Fletcher, Stephen Row Bradley, and other early settlers; a Riot at Westminster, and physical features are some of the many topics in the booklet. The WPA excerpts include separate sections on the cities of Brattleboro and Bellows Falls, with Points of Interest for each. The other WPA excerpts, while not-up-to-date as a tour guide, remain a fascinating source of historical tidbits. There are some illustrations, but their quality is only fair.
