Cultivating a Community is Key

A recent event at the Norwich Vermont Grange


Created in partnership with the Middle Branch Grange in East Bethel and Riverside Grange in West Topsham, Rooted explores the social, economic, political, and agricultural impacts the National Grange has had on Vermont’s rural communities over the past 150 years. 

The documentary, co-produced by Historic New England and the Vermont Folklife Center, weaves archival images and oral histories with footage of modern-day Grange events to paint a comprehensive picture of the organization and the New Englanders it supports.

Norwich Historical Society will have had a pop-up exhibit of photographs and other Norwich Grange materials from the collection.  Those that attended enjoyed the exhibit and learned about the impact the Norwich Grange has had on our town.

And some side bar chatter

Checking it all out

Must be on a break

And some one on one in the kitchen

And one more as the Library and Historical come together
