Learn About the History of Lake Memphremagog
Learnabout the history of Lake Memphremagog at a talk by Alan Yale of Derby. Yale, who worked for many years as a history teacher at North Country Union High School, before retiring as a history professor at Lyndon State College, will give a talk about glacial Lake Memphremgog on Sunday, May 17th, at 2 p.m. at the Derby Historical Society Museum.
The talk will cover the fifteen thousand years of the glaciers receding from Long Island to north of the St. Lawrence River. Yale will also talk about the geological processes involved in deglaciation. The special emphasis of the talk will be on the several stages of glacial lakes that formed in the Lake Memphremagog watershed after the receding glacier retreated north of the Connecticut River watershed divide in Sheffield.
The museum is located next door to North Country Union Junior High School on Main Street. This presentation is free and open to the public.
