More Information: We will gather at the Wilder Club and Library to walk the village and learn about how it developed and why it looks the way it does, identify architectural styles and elements, and to have some fun learning about the history of Wilder Village. This is a rain or shine, family-friendly event and will include a virtual tour and presentation at the Wilder Club for those who do not wish to walk, a build your own architectural modeling station, a takeaway coloring book, and an introduction to a new historic geocache in Hartford’s five villages. Please join us for a fun morning learning about the community’s history. For more information, please contact Planner Matt Osborn at 295-3075 or email@example.com
Did you know?
Did you know Wilder Village was the first planned community in the state of Vermont? The Historic District we see today is a village that essentially was planned for employees of the paper mill. The two village waterfalls were used as early at 1785 to power corn and saw mills. That was the year Benjamin Franklin invented bifocals and the U.S Dollar was created!
