Virtual Vermonter - Camp Meade Victory Museum

Formerly a CCC camp in the 1930's, Camp Meade today exists as a window back to the Depression and World War II eras. The museum features more than twenty-five indoor and outdoor exhibits, allowing visitors to listen to FDR Fireside Chats, view the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, see authentic military vehicles from the Korean, Vietnam and second World Wars (rides are available on Saturdays for an extra charge) and much more. As you pour over photographs, audio and video clips and the various displays, period music from groups like the Glenn Miller Band strengthen the feeling that you are visiting another time. If you wish to take the experience further, consider dining on 30's and 40's fare at the USO canteen, visit the army/navy gift shop or stay in one of the on-premise cabins. Cabins start at $42/night (2002) and offer access to a swimming pool and unlimited museum visits.

The Camp Meade Victory Museum is located five miles from the State Capitol (Montpelier) in Middlesex, Vermont. As might be imagined, they offer a unique educational experience that they have tailored to welcome school groups (complete with trivia packets for each student) and bus tours. You can reach them at 802-223-5537 for more information. Consider checking in with their Website too for more information on the museum. While there, you can also arrange to donate items to the museum or leave reminiscences.
