Concord Vermont Historical Society
Excerpt from the Concord Historical Society newsletter, Volume 1, Number 1, October, 1978. “The Birth of Concord Historical Society” On Thursday, May 2, 1974, an enthusiastic group of Concord residents met at the High School library for the organizational meeting of the Concord Bicentennial Committee. Under the leadership of Amy Syri, and co-chairman Willard Baker, the Committee made plans for the celebration of the National Bicentennial of 1976 and Vermont’s 200th Anniversary in 1977. ………………
At a meeting on October 25, 1977 to take care of unfinished business, and to close out the Bicentennial Committee, it was the desire of those present that Concord Historical Society would be the continuation of the four years of highly successful bicentennial effort. It was voted that monies left in the Bicentennial Committee fund be deposited to an account for Concord Historical Society. There seemed to be many good reasons for this transition, and through the perseverance of Leah Moyse, with the aid of Bernice Payeur, the Society became a reality.
