We’re extremely excited to be back in Vermont at the Historic Memorial Hall Saturday, May 6, 2017. We are the first band of their new performance season. It’s a beautiful venue.
This is from their website;
“A list of America’s most important works of architecture would include a number of important buildings by the turn-of-the-century firm of McKim, Mead, and White, These would be found in New York, Washington and Boston: Columbia University; the National War College; the White House; the Boston Public Library; and Symphony Hall. The list would also include Wilmington’s, Memorial Hall.
Major Childs, a Civil War hero, and Wilmington’s richest citizen hired Stanford White to design “Childs’ Tavern” just before the turn of the century. White’s partner William Mead was a native of Brattleboro, and well known to Childs. Childs built his tavern to encourage the tourist trade which would soon replace lumbering, the source of his fortune, as the Deerfield Valley’s largest industry.” CLICK HERE to read more
