ON THIS DATE IN HISTORY

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

Thirty four years ago on May 20, 1979 – Green Mountain House fire in Wardsboro, Vt. A large 3 story inn was destroyed by one of the worst fires to ever occur in Wardsboro. The inn sat at the intersection of Route 100 and Stratton-Arlington Rd in West Wardsboro. Below is a copy of the original Fire Mutual Aid Log from that day. The items not related to that fire were removed.
