Special Collections

The purpose of the Bixby Library’s local history collection is to preserve materials that document the history of Vergennes, VT, and surrounding communities. The historical materials housed in the History/Archives Room include records of individuals and organizations chosen for preservation because of their continuing historical value to the community. There are several forms: transcripts, manuscripts, letters, journals, account books, rare books, maps, photographs, artifacts, and indexes.

The major emphasis of the collection is historical information about the city of Vergennes and the surrounding communities in Addison County. Subject areas include, but are not limited to, early settlers, family genealogy, business, work, and prominent individuals and events.

Listed below are finding aids to the materials housed in the Bixby Library’s History/Archives Room. To view the collections in person, please call the library at (802) 877-2211 or email us to make an appointment with a History Volunteer Team member.
