On Saturday, Oct. 15th, Steve Perkins, President of the Vermont Historical Society, presented the very interesting program, “Vermont Eats” which spoke to how we got through the depression and war when so many food products were rationed.  Being born after the war in a house with five children, looking over depression recipes, I can see that some of our meals were a carry-over from that time period.  We enjoyed a "tasting" of some of the recipes from that era. Thank you, Steve!  See the recipes.  

Recipes used at the "VT Eats" program on Oct 15th.  Enjoy.

Can you help?

More important than ever in 2022!

The Covid-19 pandemic has presented all of us with challenges we never envisioned.  We all have shared in the lockdowns, mask wearing, food shortages, and some of us have been on the front lines of the “battle.”

 

The Springfield Art and Historical Society would like to hear about your personal experiences and perspectives during this unprecedented time so that we can preserve them in our archives for future research and education by generations to come.   Responses mailed to SAHS, PO Box 336, North Springfield, VT 05150 or can be emailed to sahs@vermontel.net.  Please include your name only if you are comfortable in doing so.  

Thank you to the people who submitted stories.  It's so important to capture the stories of the pandemic for history.
