Historical Society formed in 1976 for the purpose of buying, selling and acquiring as gifts both real and personal property; and of teaching, publishing and reproducing by any means historical data and information; of identifying, marking and maintaining property and sites.

The society depends solely on members dues and fundraising activities to support its programs and projects. The society sponsors the Davenport-Muzzy History
Award of $100 U.S. Savings Bond to a graduate of Barstow Memorial School who demonstrates exemplary interest in history.

Our mission is to preserve, and share through education, town history.

  • We sponsor educational field trips and hikes to explore the town’s early history.
  • We  bring programs of interest to our town.
  • We collect and preserve photos, artifacts, oral histories, genealogies, and historical accounts of town places and events.

The society is actively building its collections of biographical, genealogical and historical information and artifacts that relate to Chittenden history. Any and all contributions are appreciated.

The Chittenden Historical Society meets the second Tuesday of the month, March through December, at 7:00 PM at the Historical Society on Holden Road in Chittenden.
Visitors are welcome.
