Painting from the VHS collections, “Lake Memphremagog,” artist unknown from c. 1840; it shows lumbering in progress and a slowly industrializing landscape

Before Your Time Podcast Series

Presented by the Vermont Historical Society and Vermont Humanities. Every episode, we go inside the stacks at the Vermont Historical Society to look at an object from their permanent collection that tells us something unique about our state. Then, we take a closer look at the people, the events, or the ideas that surround each artifact.
