The Starksboro Village Meeting House is offering a very special, multi-hour guided tour of Shelburne Farms, a National Historic Landmark, on Sunday, Sept. 9, noon-3:30 p.m., as a fund-raising event to benefit the belfry restoration fund. Tickets are $35. Space is very limited and reservations and pre-payment are required.
This outstanding and exclusive tour starts at the welcome center with an orientation program, followed by a question and answer session with Marshall Webb, great-grandson of the founders of Shelburne Farms.
The group will then board a bus and visit a number of locations on the farm, including the inn and gardens, coach barn, and at Southern Acres the breeding barn (the largest clear-span building in America when built) and the old dairy barn. Well meet the cheese makers and have a taste of prize-winning cheese, learn about the farm operations, and more.
Checks, made payable to Starksboro Village Meeting House, should be sent to: Meeting House c/o Kling, Brown Hill Road, Starksboro, Vt. 05487. For questions, call 453-5227. Please join us for what promises to be a wonderful afternoon. All proceeds will be used toward rebuilding and reinstalling the top stage of the belfry on the 1838 Gothic Revival style church, listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
