In early May 2004, local experts came to Phoenix House and gave presentations about Williston's past for our Community History Project

  • Archaeologist Doug Fink showed us a PowerPoint about Williston's earliest inhabitants.
  • Dr Frank Smallwood talked about Thomas Chittenden and who he was, where he lived, and what he did.
  • Richard Allen spoke about the Geography of Williston and the History of North Williston.
  • Ruth Painter led a discussion about the History of Recreation in Williston.
  • Ginger Isham and Karen Hennig taught us about the collections and resources available to us to research.

This gave us some background information about our local history and potential topics to research for our play.

Archaeologist Douglas Frink explains where the first Native Americans were located in Vermont.
