Overview

The Georgia Historical Society (GHS) was started in 1975.  Its purpose is to promote knowledge and appreciation for the history in Georgia, VT by collecting, preserving, and sharing Georgia memorabilia.  To accomplish this mission, we need continued financial support from our members and residents.  If you know someone who might be interested in becoming a member, please ask him or her to join us.

 

History

At the Georgia Town History Committee meeting in 1974, it was decided to organize a historical society. On March 14, 1975, interested people met in the Fellowship Room at the Methodist Church and elected officers. H. Hale Nye was the first President. In August 1975 the Historical Society opened the museum at the Brick School.
