IMG_3043For each school year the Norwich Historical Society plans a program for every Marion Cross School grade classes visiting the Society and participating in a series of activities that relate to an aspect of the class curriculum. The goal of the Society’s education program is to have each student understand and appreciate not only the history of our town but also to understand how it relates to Vermont’s history.

These hands-on and age-appropriate programs range in scope from School and Farm Life 100 Years Ago, Norwich in the 19th Century: Schools, Industry and the Railroad, a walking tour to learn about the hamlet of Lewiston visiting the sites of former properties that once made up this thriving part of Norwich, and a special visit from a team of Revolutionary War re-enactors for the 6th grade each spring.

Our education program is funded, in part, thanks to the Norwich Lions Club.
