Poultney celebrates its historical roots annually during Old East Poultney Day, along with modern merriment. Usually held the first Saturday of August, each year is a little different. This year’s theme was the Civil War.
Historical buildings are open, such as the 1791 Union Academy, the church in the center of the green, and the recently repainted East Poultney Schoolhouse.
Treasures abound, such as Vermont maple syrup, honey, jewelry, baked goods, crafts, music and, occasionally, dancing. Everyone shares in the festivities!
