Old Constitution House Opens Memorial Day Weekend

WINDSOR, Vt. -- “The Birthplace of Vermont,” Old Constitution House opens Saturday May 27 for the 2017 season.

Originally a tavern where Vermont’s constitution was adopted in 1777, the restored Old Constitution House looks much as it did more than 200 years ago.  The permanent exhibition, A Free and Independent State, examines Vermont’s formative years, from the struggle for political independence to statehood in 1791.  Revolutionary War-era artifacts are on display, including a rare copy of the sermon delivered at the 1777 Windsor Convention.
