We’re Back! Proudly presents: The Secrets and Treasures of Life on the Ministerial Lot-- Located on Town Line Road by Jim Hoag and Marilyn Pillsbury Friday, March 4, 2016 at 7PM at Folsom School in Julie Pidgeon’s Room SHHS is glad to start up the 2016 year of local historical programs with Jim Hoag and Marilyn Pillsbury revealing the secrets and little know facts about the Ministerial Lot (Lot 19 on Townline Rd) and the brick house next door that is one of the oldest and least known houses in South Hero. It was built on or before 1794 making it about 222 years old! You will hear the history of the transformation of the Ministerial lot, set aside in the first legislature for the support of the ministry, later to be sold and divided. Marilyn will share pictures of the old fireplace with the Dutch ovens which had been stoned up behind a wall for over 100 years and revealed beautiful fossils in the mantle stone. Our meetings are held at 7 p.m. in the Folsom School on South Street usually the first Friday of each month. Check the Islander for confirmation. If you prefer not to climb the stairs, enter the building from the original front door in the brick half of the building. All ages are welcome!
