Add Brid Detective Society_Banner cmyk.jpg

BRIDPORT — Not many organizations can claim to be the oldest of their kind in the United States. Then again, the 200-year-old Addison Bridport Detective Society is not like most organizations.

Begun on Dec. 16, 1816, when roughly two dozen men assembled in the barn of Alan Smith in Addison for its inaugural meeting, the Detective Society has met continuously every year since, making it the oldest association of private investigators in the country that still actively meets, according to Ed Mitcham, the society’s outgoing secretary.

By John Flowers



PeterBriggs1168.jpg

ADDISON — Peter Briggs is used to doing a lot of chores on his family’s farm in Addison, from milking to tilling.

His to-do list just got a lot longer.

Briggs, 25, confirmed this week that he will be a Republican candidate for one of the two seats in the Vermont Senate representing Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore.

Claire Ayer of Addison and Chris Bray of New Haven.
