"The Grafton Historical Society was organized on August 2, 1962 to keep alive the memory of sturdy men and women who turned a wilderness into a heritage of which the people of Grafton are proud and to pass on the knowledge of that heritage to succeeding generations."  Helen Pettengill

  The Messenger Boy of Grafton, Vermont
The Grafton Cavaliers
by Thomas E. Fontaine
Two books about the Civil War available at the Grafton Historical Society, local bookstores and on-line on our website.   
     The author, Tom Fontaine, is a teacher at Kurn Hattin Homes in Westminster, VT.  He wrote book 1, The Messenger Boy of Grafton, Vermont when he was a teacher at the Grafton Elementary School to give his students the insight that their history is all around them in their own town.  The society published the book as part of its collection of books for children. Tom had been working on  book 2 and the society just published it  in August of 2017.
