10:00AM-04:00PM: Historic Children’s Games

Vermont History Center Lawn, 60 Washington St, Barre

The young (and young at heart) will enjoy playing games that have been enjoyed by generations of Vermonters. Try walking on stilts (there will be expert instructors!), hopscotch, checkers, beanbags, cup and ball, or graces. These games, presented on the lawn of the Vermont History Center, are based upon descriptions found in the 1888 diary of Clara Doty of Tinmouth, Vermont.

Strength Through Heritage

Barre is the fourth largest city in Vermont. While the community first developed around the milling available along the adjacent Winooski River, granite soon emerged as the key industry of Barre. In fact, granite from Barre, Vermont was used in some of the nation (and world’s) finest buildings, monuments, and memorials. Consequently, granite carvers from across the world settled in Barre making the city a rich mixture of cultures from all over the world.
