Goshen Historical Society

The Goshen Historical Society (GHS) was formed in 2022 for the purpose of researching, documenting, preserving and revealing the rich history of Goshen and its people.

GHS is a 501c3 non-profit registered with the State of Vermont and receives no outside support. It depends on dues and fundraising to fund all activities.

We welcome all new members and if you are interested in helping with and/or supporting these endeavors, please join today!

Several membership levels are available from student through supporting membership. We also offer a lifetime membership. Annual dues are to be renewed each December.

All new members will receive a membership packet delivered via email to save costs. If you prefer a mailed copy, please send an email to membership@goshenhistoryvt.org.

GHS is actively working on a number of fundraising events for 2022. In late July we will host a Blueberry Festival and in early December weplan to annouce and event featuring a period reenactment reading and a historical presentationsalong with time for connection and refreshments.

Addtionally, GHS works collaboratively with the Selectboard. GHS is working on an application to submit a historical grant with the State of Vermont later this summerand to be annouced in early 2023–we hope for an award.

If you have historical photos or information you would like to add to our work in archiving Goshen’s rich history, please let us know.
