Henry Sheldon Museum Of Vermont History

Henry Sheldon Museum Of Vermont History

Henry Sheldon devoted thirty years of his life to collecting, documenting, and preserving objects, photographs and written records of Vermont, and more particularly of everyday life in Middlebury and Addison County. Although at the time of his death in 1907 the Museum was crowded with objects and documents, he was meticulous in labeling the origins of objects, maintaining inventories and descriptions, and recording stories about many of the artifacts.
