Richmond Historical Society Annual Meeting and Program

Past event
Mar 5, 2023, 3 to 4:30 PM

The Richmond Historical Society will holding its Annual Meeting on Sunday, March 5 at 3:00 PM. The meeting to be held in the Community Room of the Richmond Free Library will include a historical presentation by Karen Yaggy on Richmond's one room school houses and early student education. There will be a short business meeting before the presentation for the purpose of electing the Historical Society officers for 2023 and reviewing 2022 RHS activities.

Eighty percent of all Vermont students were taught in one-room schoolhouses in the first decade of the 1900's. At that time Vermont and Kansas were tied for first place in the US for the proportion of school age children attending school. Richmond, at one time, had up to eleven schools scattered across the town. This Richmond Historical Society sponsored presentation will share Superintendent and Health Officer Reports, along with a variety of photos and thus will paint a vivid picture of Richmond's local education in the early 1900's.
