Barnet to celebrate 250th with stories

Posted: Updated:

BARNET, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont town of Barnet is celebrating the 250th anniversary of the signing of the community's charter.

On Monday, the Barnet 250th Committee and the Barnet Historical Society will present a reading of the charter interspersed with dramatic re-enactments of stories from the town's past.

The performance will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Barnet Center Church.

Historical Society member Alan Boye says the show centers on a handful of essays written by a 12-year old-girl in Barnet in 1839.

He tells the Caledonian Record that one story talks about a haunted school house while another talks about a horse that was so religious it went to church on Sundays even when its owner was sick in bed.
