For Teachers

The St. Johnsbury History and Heritage Center’s vision is to educate to instill a sense of one’s place. In order to understand the present, one needs to look back at our area’s “roots”. These “roots” are discovered in maps, writings, memoirs, pictures, monuments, and artifacts. Check out the educational programming available on-site at your school or at historic locations in St. Johnsbury.

All classes and field studies meet Vermont Standards and Grade Cluster Expectations for History and Social Studies.
