Chester, VT 05143

The First Universalist Parish of Chester, Terrigenous Landscape Architecture, and Chester Townscape will be hosting a community event to celebrate the history of North Chester.

The event will kick off with a dedication of three elm trees that were recently planted. From 1:30 – 2:30 p.m., local architectural historian Hugh Henry will present a collection of vintage Chester photographs, talk about the history of the town and share stories from the 1800s. At 2:30 p.m., Brian Post,  executive director of the Stone Trust in Dummerston, will talk about the use of historic mortars and construction of the stone buildings.

Just before 3 p.m, to conclude the event, they will acknowledge the new historic marker established in the front of the church to honor the Stone Village community.

Over the last few years, Terrigenous Landscape Architecture, Chester Town staff and members of Chester Townscape have been working together on several projects around Chester planting trees and gardens, installing benches, renovating the streetscape and creating recreational spaces. This year’s event shines some light on Chester’s history, but also thanks the members of our community and their collaborative efforts to enhance the experience of  residents, support local businesses and preserve the unique charm of Chester.
