The Abenaki of the Lake Memphremagog Watershed Basin
Vermont Northland Journal
8.23.2010


Long before European settlers arrived in Vermont, including the Lake Memphremagog watershed, the state was home to the Abenaki. Come to the Derby Historical Society’s new museum on Sunday, August 29 and learn about the history of the Abenaki of the region, particularly in Derby – before and after the arrival of European settlers.

Retired teacher and active artist, Bea Nelson of Derby, will share her extensive knowledge of the Abenaki influence on the region. Her program is titled, “Before and After Contact: The Wabanaki of the Mempremagog area.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 2 p.m. The new museum is located on Main Street in the village of Derby on the campus of North Country Union Junior High School. It is in the building left of the school which for decades served as the North Hall for Derby Academy.

People with questions about the event, or who wish to know more about the historical society, can contact Bill Gardyne at (802) 766-5324, Allen Yale at (802) 766-5159, or Scott Wheeler at (802) 334-5920.
