In developing their towns, early Vermont settlers created a wide range of things that spoke to their values, backgrounds, skills, and cultural attitudes. Their architecture, gravestones, furniture, ironwork, paintings, pottery, and textiles are evocative of specific people, places, and situations. This lecture and slide presentation by William Hosley demonstrates how art and artifacts can be used to understand historical experience while surveying the extraordinary visual allure of historic Vermont.
