January 2022

To All - New Year’s Greetings from the Past.  The Rutland Historical Society is also welcoming from the past a long lost sign which hung outside the first location of the Society at the early Bank of Rutland Building on Center Street.  It went missing when the Society vacated the building in the 1980s and was recently discovered at a local antiques business.  It had been acquired by them from just across the border in New York State.
