The Vermont Arts Council recently awarded a generous Cultural Facilities Grant for installing a state-of-the-art audio-visual system at the historic Strafford Town House in Strafford, Vermont. This project—a collaborative effort between the Friends of the Morrill Homestead, the Town House Advisory Group and the Town of Strafford—is supported in part by the Vermont Arts Council and the State of Vermont.
The Strafford Town House is the symbolic and functional heartbeat of the Strafford community, serving as the meeting space for services, celebrations, performances, educational events, municipal meetings and a host of other gatherings. In recent decades events of regional and national significance have drawn audience members from throughout the North America.
The grant funds have been used to purchase and install a versatile, digital audio-visual and lighting system that integrates seamlessly with the historic architecture, ensuring that this iconic building will remain a vital meeting space for future generations. By producing an enhanced sound and lighting experience for audiences, this system will increase the number and diversity of public programs and performances that can be accommodated at the Town House, including music, art, theater and a wide range public events, celebrations, speeches and other gatherings.
