J&L program rescheduled for January 15, 2022 at 2 pm

Enjoy the video made by Jackie Barr with historical data provided by Bunni Putnam of the SAHS.  Visit SAHS and see the dolls and carriages.

A Photographic History of Jones & Lamson.  Because the J & L building on Clinton Street is being torn down, we want to commemorate its history, beginning with the 1888 decision to purchase the company from Windsor, moving it to Springfield, the expansion beginning with the first three buildings on lower Main Street, hiring James Hartness, and how it grew to include Fellows Gear Shaper, Bryant Grinder and Lovejoy Tool.  This will be a photo-lecture program presented by Hugh & Bunni Putnam.  We will welcome comments from the audience.

This and all of the Society’s programs are free and open to the public and are generally held on the third Saturday of the month at 2 PM.

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.
