Burlington College will soon have more space in its new location on North Avenue and the school is getting some welcome help to fill the building.
Mark Snelling donated dozens of file cabinets, chairs, tables and other office furniture Thursday. The pieces are left over from his late father's business, Shelburne Industries. That company was started more than 50 years ago by the late Governor Richard Snelling. It was the largest manufacturer of brass cup holders in the world. Thursday, the last remnants of Governor Snelling's business bid farewell.
"There's a lot of wonderful history," Mark Snelling said.
The Snelling Corporation has leased the building to Vermont Country Home products for the last 10 years. It's now being sold-- all 73,000 square feet on 20 acres-- and will close later this month.
