Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History's primary aim is to facilitate
"... an understanding of regional Vermont history through
sharing with the community a wealth of objects and written materials
which document the history of Middlebury, Addison County, and
Vermont." It tells the story of the region's industrial history
through numerous collections and changing exhibits, and sponsors
educational programs, a summer concert and other activities (see
for more information). The Museum was chartered in 1882 and is
broken down physically into three parts: the Judd-Harris House,
the Walter Cerf Gallery and the Stewart-Swift Research Center.
The Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History is located
on 1 Park Street in Middlebury, and can be reached at 802-388-2117.
