Mendon reviews 1927 flood
The Mendon Historical Society will present a program on the 1927 flood at 7 p.m. Jan. 17 in the Mendon Town Office.
The talk by historian Nicholas Clifford, titled “Vermont’s Flood of 1927: A New Look,” will examine the disaster’s effects on Vermont. The historical society hopes comparing 1927, which is remembered as the greatest natural disaster in Vermont’s history, to Tropical Storm Irene will help Mendon put the more recent storm into context.
The Vermont Humanities Council is sponsoring the event through its Speakers Bureau program. For more information, please call 773-8172.MORE IN Local & State
