MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont State Archives and Records Administration is hosting a series of programs to highlight state archives month.
Secretary of State Jim Condos, who oversees the state archives, and declared October state archives month, says the state's knowledge of its past gives the state a better understanding of the present and clearer glimpse of the future.
On Oct. 14, the archives, along with the Department of Disabilities, Aging, and Independent Living, is hosting an open house highlighting the history of the Brandon Training School. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the school's establishment and the 20th anniversary of its closing.
On Oct. 26, the archives will offer tours of the archives and display some key documents, including the 1777 Vermont Constitution.
