Putney Historical Society on Feb 25th 2014
Since 1959 the all-volunteer Putney Historical Society (PHS) has worked alongside the community to preserve and protect its history and vitality. Recently PHS has taken a major leap forward through proactive community development. As the steward of two very important local landmarks – the Putney General Store & the former United Church of Putney (now Next Stage), PHS is committed to supporting the village economy through projects which bring people downtown. PHS is partnering with the non-profit Next Stage Arts Project to transform the former church into a performing arts center, gathering place, and PHS offices.
Belfry & Roof Restored!
Thanks to several early local supporters and a matching grant from the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, PHS has just completed the restoration of the belfry and the repair of the slate roof. The belfry work was done by master carpenter, Chris Patton and his crew. The roof was repaired by Phoenix Roofing and the belfry was painted by S & S Painters. All the work was ably coordinated by volunteer Michael Wells. PHS is very grateful to this wonderful team for a job well done!
