Leaders of the Vermont Historical Society have called the
“one of the finest small museums in the state”.
The Grafton Historical Society, an organization of over four hundred members, creates and staffs a museum in the historic Stowell/Mead house on Main Street. The Museum’s collections have increased to include soapstone objects, writing accessories, textiles and costumes, Civil War artifacts, glass bottles, farm implements and much more. Exhibits present a fresh thematic face each year as objects are rotated for conservation and rest.
We are pleased to announce that the Grafton History Museum has been chosen by the Vermont Dept. of Tourism and Marketing to be one of just 10 sites on the new Vermont African-American Heritage Trail. Our 2013 displays will explore that theme as well as add some interactivity to the current displays and increase ease of access to Historical Society resources such as the National Register Project materials and cemetery records.
