The Cavendish Historical Society (CHS) is looking for artifact from the 1st peoples that lived here. Carmine Guica reported that while he was exploring cellar holes he came across a variety of arrow heads or projectile points. Have you found such items in Cavendish? Have you found unusual rocks or stones that appear to be "worked?" They could have been used for grinding corn or acorns. Does your family lore contain stories of Indians, gypsies or "Dark French?" If you have any information, please contact CHS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802/226-7807, CHS, PO Box 472, Cavendish VT 05142 or stop by the Museum on Sunday, Oct. 1 from 2-4.
October 8 (Sunday) is the last day the CHS Museum will be open for the summer season. It will also be the afternoon of the Proctorsville Ghost Walk. There are many ghosts in Proctorsville village including: George (because he looks like George Clooney) who haunts The Golden Stage Inn; a ghost who has rights written into the deed of the house; Homer and Charlie have their special places to haunt and that’s just the beginning.
The Ghost Walk is free and open to the public. Walkers should meet at the Proctorsville War Memorial-Route 131, near the Village Clipper and across from the Proctorsville Green, at 2 pm. The walk will be approximately two hours and will be on side walk. This is a free event open to the public.
