Ready to get into the holiday spirit?? Come join us as we decorate the Elton Tavern for the holiday season. Or drop off some cookies for the annual Burlington Carol Sing. Details below.
We’d like to thank our members for attending the BHS Annual Members Meeting on Nov 13th. As discussed during the presentation on 75 years of the Burlington Volunteer Fire Dept, here is the video created by Jackie Shadford that contains additional information on the early beginnings of the fire dept as well as how far the department has come in the past 75 years. We hope you enjoy it!
Did you know that Tavern Day this year extends all the way to BVFD Station #1?!
Check the flyer below for what’s new at this year’s Tavern Day 2022!
Also see below for the full schedule of events throughout the day.
The BHS Small Works Art Sale and Exhibition is on again this year and we’re looking for artists to participate. This year’s event includes 2 opportunities to sell artwork – on Friday, Sept 16 and again on Tavern Day Sunday, Sept 18 and we’d love to fill the Elton Tavern meeting room with wonderful works of art from local artists. Details on submissions can be found on the attached flyers.
Congratulations to Emma Andros – the 2022 recipient of Burlington Historical Society’s Else Hutchins Scholarship! Wishing you all the best in your future studies!
Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Memorial Day celebration at the town green. Special thanks to our wonderful docents – Barbara and Jerry – who welcomed the public to the Elton Tavern during the festivities.
