Stolen Hinesburg historic marker recovered

Posted: Updated:

A piece of Vermont history town officials thought was stolen for scrap metal will make its way home in Hinesburg.

It's a story we first told you about Monday night. A state historic marker recognizing the African-American community was recently swiped from its Lincoln Hill Road location.

But Friday, town officials say a South Burlington couple spotted the sign while walking through a cemetery near Lincoln Hill. The sign was slightly damaged but is being repaired, and the plan is to reinstall it soon.

Hinesburg police are still working the case.

The marker was installed in 2011 as part of the African-American Heritage Trail in Vermont.
