By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — According to 2016 data provided by the Vermont nonprofit Age Well, 19.9 percent of Addison County residents — nearly one in every five — are age 65 years or older. That’s up from 13.4 percent in 2011.

That was the message delivered last week by a variety of human services providers who make up the Hunger Council of Addison County.

Posted on February 15, 2018 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



Bixby JeffFritz1053 Lead.jpg

This past Sunday afternoon some lucky history buffs got to meet a 188-year-old Vergennes icon. Adorning his classic brown suit and tie and capped off with his fez, Mr. William Grove Bixby gave a tour of his namesake, the Bixby Memorial Library.

Not buying it?

OK, neither are we.

Of course the original Bixby is dead. In fact he died way back in February of 1907. But his legacy is very much still alive in the Little City.

Civil War Heritage Trail is taking shape

Posted on February 15, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



ADDISON COUNTY — After years of planning, the Vermont in the Civil War Heritage Trail is taking shape along the Route 7 corridor from Bennington to the Canadian border. The trail was born out of a desire to link key American Civil War sites in the Green Mountain State — museums, historic sites, exhibits and more — and educate by making this important history more unified and accessible.

Howard Coffin’s 2013 book “Something Abides: Discovering the Civil War in Today’s Vermont” has served as a reference and inspiration for the trail.
