Home: A Sense of Place

St. Johnsbury History & Heritage Center’s mission is to preserve and protect our local history.

Our collection includes over 5,000 cultural artifacts that help tell the stories that shape our community’s identity. To fulfill our mission, we have a purchased 421 Summer Street as a permanent and sustainable location to house these artifacts and invite students, locals, and visitors to learn about the town’s history. We can’t wait to open our doors to visitors!

We are slowly but surely making steps to call the new house our home and are anxious to share our progress and hopes for the future.  An opening date with some exhibits will optimistically take place in late summer or early fall.   Meanwhile it takes a community to achieve The History & Heritage Center and we thank you for your past support and hope for your continued support.

Lyndon Woodworking delivered the first round of our beautiful display cases on May 28, 2015 – just in time for our open house for Alumni Weekend! The cabinets were designed by Sean Breen and made in Lyndonville. We appreciate the financial support from Weidmann Electrical Technology and Dr. Jerry & Judy Rankin in purchasing these gorgeous homes for our treasures!
