Let’s talk about Vermont’s 1970s Counterculture
TheVermont Historical Society will be holding public forums statewide to talk about the influence of the 1970s on Vermont. The Society is seeking input to help guide our collections, documentation, and public programs about this transformative era.
«Did you live in Vermont in the 1970s? Did you move to Vermont in the 1970s? If you would like to learn more about that important and influential decade, or if you have memories, stories, or information to share with VHS staff, please join us at a community forum near you.» stated Jackie Calder, Vermont Historical Society curator.

These public forums-or community conversations-are the first step in a much longer project to collect oral histories, objects, books, personal papers, and more that tell the full story of the period.
This project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services grant #MA-1014-0279-14. The Vermont Historical Society will update information about this project on their website: vermonthistory.org/vt70s.
