Saturday 1/29/22, 10am: "History in Your Hand: Ten Artifacts that Tell Us About Verona". At the Verona Senior Center.

Our guest speaker this month can't speak, but will still tell many stories about Verona's past. Please join us for our official "Annual Meeting" to kick off 2022, and get a chance to get up close and learn about ten of the most interesting artifacts from the archives of the Verona Area Historical Society. These items represent a sampling of the hundreds of objects, photos, and stories we've preserved over the years in our attempt to save and show physical links to disappearing chapters of our town's story.

You will get to see and learn about the stories of:

  • Survival tools crafted by human hands thousands of years ago.

  • A Verona woman who served as a nurse during WWI and at the building of the Panama Canal.

  • A community quilt created to help replace a school destroyed by a tornado a century ago.

  • Several other items, including some whose goal is to help future generations understand what 2020 was like.


Date to be decided: "The Vroman Pioneer Family". At the Verona Senior Center.

The Vroman family were early settlers of the Verona and Fitchburg area. From helping build our first mill to even providing the name "Verona" (from their home town in Verona, New York), they were very active in shaping the early years of our communities. Our guests will be members of the Vroman family who will help us get to know these early pioneers and the mark they left.
