What We Learned: Intro

The Barre Community History Project synthesized the work of the students into an exhibit for the Community History Project Celebration at the State House and the Vermont History Expo 2005 at Tunbridge Fair Grounds. The following pages include parts of that exhibit and some additional oral material. The portions of text in color are excerpts from the students writing.
